    You would think when you buy a $2000 laptop that is advertised as having a fantastic hi def screen that you would be able to play your HD content that you have purchased from iTunes! I bought my new 15 inch Retina Macbook Pro and am getting an HDCP error on iTunes when trying to play my purchased HD content. The error code tells me that my display will not work with HDCP. What the heck! I've been looking and seem to be the only one with this problem. Any ideas?

    Are you talking about the built in screen or an external?

    The only time I've ever gotten that is when I tried to play an HD movie from iTunes on my Mac mini, but sending the video to the Apple TV using AirPlay.

    I had to play it from the Apple TV using library sharing in order to view it.

    I get it on the normal screen with no external monitor plugged in and no airplay or anything. The iTunes rental is a black screen and no sound but looks like it plays but it doesn't start the 24 hour timer
