iTunes HDCP ErrorRecently, I downloaded a high-def TV show through iTunes to watch on my Mac Mini Home Theater. Was this the seamless ‘on-demand’ experience I had hoped for… not exactly.

So, I’m a little late to the game and I decided to check out AMC’s Mad Men television show.  Thanks to Netflix, I worked through the three disks of Season 1 just in time to set up my DirecTV DVR to record the Season 2 marathon.  The next day, I sat down to start Season 2 and it began with a recap of Season 1… only during the recap I realized that I somehow must have missed an entire episode, specifically the season finale.  I had already returned the disk to Netflix, so my solution for an instant fix was to buy the episode off of iTunes.
