    Ok why? I am trying to watch a few new episodes that I bought in iTunes right on my MBP. Why isn't it's built in screen authorized? I have never gotten this message before. Any ideas? Found this screen cap on the net but no fix.

    There's a workaround here, but you might not like it.

    All of this might make sense if I were trying to watch these shows on an external monitor, but I'm not. I'm trying to watch them right on my MBPs own screen. It's a 4 month old MBP. This is annoying to say the least.

    Problem solved.

    I logged in under another user account and the videos played with no warning. Logged back in under my default account and the videos now play.

    I think the computer was thinking that an old cinema display was still attached though I sold it last fall and of course I haven't used it since then.
