When trying to watch rented content, the ATV says that my connection is not HDCP Compliant and that I should use component cables. I'm using an HDMI cable connected directly to my HDTV. The users guide of my Mitsubishi WD52627 says that the HDMI ports are HDCP compliant. What gives? Is it my HDMI cable?

"This content requires HDCP for playback. HDCP isn't supported by your HDMI connection. Use the component video connection to watch this content."
This is Apple's deal not yours! If your TV is HDCP compliant then all should be well. I know this because mine is and I have been able to watch rented and purchased content up until two-three weeks ago. HDCP is a DRM related deal and Apple has yet to figure this out. I've been on the phone with Apple Care and the guy said uhhhh...I've talked with some other people and it hasn't popped up on anyone's radar. That's BS this forum is full of people affected by it. They don't have a solution as evidenced by repeated emails going unanswered even though through the support website they guarantee a reply within 48 hours.
I've localized the problem to movies bought through the AppleTV. TV shows don't exhibit the same problem and movies that I've purchased with my computer play on the AppleTV. I've purchased 17 movies through my AppleTV and none of them work anymore...after months of working. For me I think it has something to do with the latest iTunes update. None of the hardware has changed and I haven't introduced anything into the setup.
What gives Apple. Enough with the silence...if there's a problem then say so...I can wait. But the silence kills me.
