    So can you watch rented movies from iTunes on your TV using 360 Connect?

    Yeah, would be nice. I somehow can't see it though, but I'm sure if it's possible NullRiver will add the ability.

    The 360 can't play iTunes DRM, so no.

    Figured that.

    But you can convert them to the correct format, no?

    No, the DRM is just that- Digital Rights Management. It's a form of copy protection. It will prevent you from converting it to another format.

    I suppose you could play the rental on an iPod and hook the iPod up with a video output cable to a TV tuner on a PC and record it, but that's just a lot of trouble.
