I download movies purchased in iTunes (for home sharing) and I've noticed my iMac keeps thinking it isn't authorized to play our purchased movies. Every day or so I have to type in my Apple ID password to reauthorize my iMac, it checks in with Apple, then it says this computer was already authorized. I can then play movies for about a day or two until it asks again. Anyone know what is causing this or how I can fix it?
