    Anyone here playing purchased 1080p iTunes content on their windows HTPC's? I bought the new Mad Men episode to play on my computer that runs a i2500k with integrated graphics, only to get the following message upon hitting play: "The 1080p version of "A Little Kiss" is too large to play on this computer. This message will be dismissed in 60 seconds"

    After 60 seconds passes, the episode starts, but I'm not sure that it is playing back at 1080p or 720p. Same thing happens whether it's on my 1920x1080 monitor connected through displayport or on my 1080p HDTV via hdmi.

    Sandy Bridge graphics handles 1080p just fine, because I do it all the time. This has got to be an iTunes bug, right? Anyone else have this issue?

    Well, it certainly wouldn't be the only bug in this release.

    Either that or you're holding it wrong... :rolleyes: :D
