    This should be a fairly easy question to answer. How does the new AppleTV handle DRM videos from iTunes when output over HDMI? I'm asking because I have a Unibody Macbook and when I hook it up to my HDTV to watch videos I purchased through iTunes it won't play HD versions because of the DRM. This is ridiculous. I'm contemplating getting an ATV and want to make sure I won't have the same problem.

    Thanks

    If the TV supports HDCP, the video should play without issue.

    It's an older (2007ish) Samsung LCD, I was getting the HDCP error with my macbook, so it's safe to assume I'll have the same problems with an AppleTV?
