    It's somewhat unclear as to what version of the Apple TV you are talking about, but regardless of whether you have the "old" or "new" Apple TV if you rent something on the Apple TV it can't be moved or synced back to the Mac/PC (it has to be viewed on the Apple TV). Only movies/TV shows that you actually purchase can be synced back to your computer. If you purchased a movie on an "old" Apple TV it should be able to sync back to your computer -- if it didn't then you've probably experienced a glitch in your system or bug in iTunes or the Apple TV. Here is the clause from the iTunes Store Terms of Service:
