Apple has updated iTunes to version 7.6.1.

The update improves the software's compatibility with Apple TV 2 and provides several bug fixes, the company reports in notes provided with the 44.1MB patch, which is presently available through Software Update.

It's possible the update addresses problems reported by some Apple TV users in which synching content using to the updated set-top box takes an age, but this hasn't been tested here at this point.

Apple introduced iTunes 7.6 at Macworld Expo, introducing numerous new features including US film rental services.
