It has support for movie rentals. I don't actually see any other changes. UI is exactly the same, sort fields are the same. ITL looks the same in finder.

So...
a) You can't buy HD quality movies.
b) You can't rent HD quality movies on your computer.

Pathetic.

I"m being stupid here, but I can't find the rent button. I've got iTunes 7.6, but not rent button.

Any advice?


I just saw an icon in the top for "Live Free or Die Hard" "available to rent!" then it passed and I haven't seen it or anything else related to rentals yet. It was on the front page in the top left of iTunes.

Agreed.
Talk about a little confusing too, so I can get HD content, but not on my all my iTunes devices? Makes no sense.

I don't really care about the HD quality, but it would be nice to be able to rent movies with surround sound with my computer. My iMac is hooked up as a home theatre and I would like to hear all the sound for $3.99.

I am pretty pissed about this myself...I do want to rent as well, but I want to own some movies, and I want them in HD...

As for why the HD can't be played on a computer...that makes no sense at all.

fixed the quicktime bug with CBR!

After all the nonsense written to explain away the bug in the last version of iTunes/Quicktime, it's good to feed my collection with CBR at 256Mbs again with the CD's.

My iPod is happy with the new version!

Memory problems

Since upgrading to 7.6, I get the following error box when trying to load iTunes.

"The iTunes application could not be opened. There is not enough memory available."

I've repaired permissions and repaired the HD, Shutdown and logged in, still I get this error message. Does anyone have any idea why iTunes is displaying this error message? iTunes 7.5x was working fine before I upgraded to 7.6.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You could try trashing file /Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes.plist. I don't know if that will help. It's just one of the standard tricks when an application misbehaves.
