    Mac Mini HDMI out to TV, won't play iTunes purchased movie video - just audio. It used to work fine. It'll play the movie trailers, music videos, etc.. Just not the video of a real purchased movie. Is this some sort of copy protection? What's the fix? I use my Mac Mini as the main music and movie hub in my home audio / video system. If I can't play movies from it thru HDMI, it's useless!

    Thanks,

    Tim

    There is copy protection on some iTunes video, HDCP. Make sure your TV is HDCP compliant - if so, you probably need a new HDMI cable.
