    I'm at my country house (i don't have the computer i sync to here) and i want to buy and watch 21, i could buy it but i'm planning to watch it with 5 other people on my 40" TV (not HD). I have an :apple:TV but it ony works on HD Tv's. So my question is, can i buy 21 then burn it onto a DVD using iDVD, then watch it on my TV?

    TV works on non HD TV's as long as its widescreen (and theres a way around that as well).

    Best way to do it would be to use a screencapture app, however remember when you buy a film through iTunes on a computer, its not as good resolution as via an TV.

    But you can burn it as a Data DVD but you won't be able to watch it on anything:mad:.

    Never know it might help if he wants to move it to another PC and put it on iTunes there and do it that way.

    Apple TV is not compatible with SDTV But if you have the component inputs (red, green, and blue) and Simulated Widescreen Mode (Not sure on the last part) it will work, HDMI on an SDTV will not work as it is HD only.

    Whatever

    Whatever, it's too late, i'm not watching 21 tonight, i'll go out and rent it tomorrow the scratchy, long, old-fashioned way. But if anyone finds a program or way to download a iTunes movie onto a DVD to watch on a DVD Player, post it.
