rented movies not playing on external display

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Hi all

Cant seem to find any topics on AI about this, but there is on the apple discussion boards.

I have the new mac mini connected to an old plasma. I tried to watch a rented movie (through iTunes) but all I get is a black screen and no sound. It downloads ok and has all the chapters etc.... but just wont show any picture or sound when I play it.

Things I have tried:

1. reinstalled Quicktime

2. installed lastest firmware

3. purchased a song to comfirm my computer is authorized

The movie was in SD, from what I have read the problem only occurrs with HD, but not for me!

Thanks in advance

    I wondering if the DRM on the video is not allowing you to play them on the external display?
