WHY?!? (insert long, wretched-sounding scream, followed by: NOOOOOOOO!)

My AppleTV has decided that it needs to completely resync with iTunes and is reloading EVERYTHING. This is roughly 2297 songs and episodes of TV shows. Which means it is taking forever.

My studying would be going much better if my AppleTV were up and running and I could listen to music. I am distracting myself from this annoyance by ordering pizza.
