    I rented a couple of TV shows on my computer the other day, but when I synch'ed my phone to my computer they didn't show up as available to transfer to the phone. I didn't watch the keynote so I'm not sure if Steve mentioned something about this, but shouldn't I be able to transfer them to my phone? Is it because the shows are in HD or is the iPhone4 not able to handle TV show rentals until the next update?

    I think you need to specify a setting in iTunes to specifically transfer them over to your itunes.

    renting tv/movies is setup I believe so it can only reside on one device at a time. Either the computer within itunes or your iphone.

    Yes, exactly. But the problem is that I can't find the option to move them to the phone in the first place when I synch it. I'll look at it again when I get home to see if I missed anything. Just wondering if anyone knew if that was a feature that should work now or if it's coming in a 4.x update.
