ITunes Movie Rental - Download Error
I was curious if anyone else has had this problem. I have been trying to download the rental 2012 in HD and I've been having a terrible time. I have plenty of space on my iPad. When I first started everything was fine. It takes a long time and the iPad went to sleep, but I assumed that movie downloads continue. Well anyhow I got a Download Error after half of it was downloaded. The only way to get it to restart and clear the partial download was to completely restore my iPad. After going through the whole restore process it has happened AGAIN! After about 2 GB of the movie downloaded. My network is pretty fast.

Rental Download Movie Useless?
While traveling, I tried to download a movie rental for the flight home, but the download time is over 7 hours, necessitating a bit of foresight for a modicum of entertainment value. I left the download running overnight, but a workaround is necessary to avoid having the download abort, and that is turning off the sleep function in settings/auto-lock/never. I will now try it again, but how successful does Apple think their video rental business is going to be with this paradigm? A disillusioned consumer is the worst case, because they blog negative on your product.

It is misleading over-marketing of this product for Mr Jobs to create the illusion of easy access to video entertainment, create a marketplace for accessing such entertainment, but fail to engineer some sort of compression of these huge video files so that the download process with consumer level connectivity speeds is remotely practical.

Movie Rental Via Ios 4.2 / Why Do I Have To Download The Movie?
I read renting a movie running ios 4.2 in IPAD would mean:

Rent and watch (no more download, cause renting and downloading was possible before)

What do I have to do to rent a movie in ITUNES on IPAD or IPHONE and watching it IMMEDIATELLY? No download - is it possible?

Movie Rental Stopped Mid Download - Stuck And Gives Error
Anyone else experience this and how did you fix it?

I rented a movie and it only downloaded about half before I had to leave but I figured it would just continue next time I had wifi access.

Now the movie shows in the Downloads in iTunes on the iPad with a message "Download error. Tap to retry". When I tap, it says Processing for a second then the same error message appears.

Where The Is Rental Movie Location?
I have downloaded my first rental movie while I slept. When I got back to my iPad, iTunes had shut down so I began to try to find my movie. It wasn't in my purchases, in my film or TV library or anywhere I could look. Nothing, nada, no clue and no help in support!

I have spent ages hunting for some clue but... I played another TV show download that I had and at the end if the show I selected the TV shows tab and it goes to a different page to the library with the show icons visible. At the top of this page were two option tabs, TV shows and Rentals. Lo and behold, the Rental tab took me to my download!

There has to be an easier way... What is it please?

No Rental Or Movie Streaming?
Is it just me, or is there no way to stream rentals or movies you buy from the itunes store. I knew the iPhone was like this, but this sucks. That means you have to wait until a movie is completely done downloading before you can watch

Movie Rental Unable To Delete?
I've looked for an answer, but it mostly seems to be from people who don't know how to access the delete option. That isn't my problem.

I have a iTunes movie rental that is stuck on my iPad. It has expired, and pressing the X after holding the movie icon down till it shakes doesn't delete the movie. I get the warning and all, but nothing happens after I hit the Delete. It doesn't appear in iTunes, so I can't delete it from there either.

Rental Movie Transfer Missing?
I recently rented three movies via iTunes on my computer. I want to watch them on my flight tomorrow so I transferred them to my iPad. There was an error on one of the three... it said there wasn't sufficient space although there is over 27GB free. Now the movie is no longer on my computer nor my iPad. Trying it again, the other two transferred over successfully. I've done this several times before without any problems.

Will I Lose Rental Movie When I Update?
When I start the IOS 4.2 update on my iPad, I get the following message:

"There are rentals on the iPad "my ipad". You should transfer these movies to your iTunes library before updating this iPad. Are you sure you want to continue?"

I do have a movie rental on the iPad that I haven't started watching. I haven't pulled the trigger on the update yet. As far as I know, there is no way to transfer movie rentals from an iPad. And I have a feeling I'll lose my movie if I do the update. Am I missing something? Is there a way to do the update without losing the movie?

Lost Movie Rental After Reset All
Performed a reset all yesterday to locate the camera app. That didn't work (but reset default home screen did) but I had to go back through an ICloud restore. In doing so it appears I lost the movie I had rented for my trip home. I also see a ton of songs in the purchased section of iTunes on my iPad but "tap to download" doesn't work. Really just concerned about getting the movies back.

Movie Rental Display - Connected To Computer ?
I have rented a movie and transferred it to my ipad. I just connected it to a display with the vga/iPad connector. I started the movie and got a message that said I could not play this movie connected to a display. There was also something about protection. (sorry I didn't write down the exact words) I have been able to watch other movies I have put on my ipad and connected to a display. I'm guessing this is the case for all rented movies. I have connected my computer to a display and shown rented movies. Has anyone else encountered this?

Transferring Rental Movie To Your Computer Or Imac?
1. Is there still no way to transfer movie rentals to your computer/iMac? I just found out today...... This sucks...... I have a previous rental on there and it was in HD and I downloaded it at a friends house expecting to watch it when I got home on my iMac in HD. I don't get this rule....

2. Well I did a another movie rental on my iPad and while it was downloading it was low on battery so I plugged it in. The download stopped and said tap to retry and there is some kind of error......... And now it won't download. I only did it this time because you can only watch it in HD on your iPad.....

Rental Movie Crashes Airplay - Locally Controll
I downloaded the Movie Rental 'Robin Hood' in iTunes10 and then played it on an Apple TV2 connected to a Sony HDD LCD TV by selecting it from the Shared iTunes Library. After the viewing I transferred the Rental to an iPad 4.2.1 and it played on the iPad using the 'Videos' application without any issues. When I tried to stream it from the iPad to the AppleTV using Airplay the iPad hung with a blank screen and nothing played on the TV. When switching off the Apple TV I was able to regain control of the iPad but it would not play the movie locally. The ability to play the movie on the iPad was resolved by performing a combined Off+Menu process. After proving that it would then play on the iPad I then transferred the rental back to the iTunes library and proved that it would play in Safari. The issue appears to be with Airplay.

ITunes Hd Movie Download Not Available
I was browsing movies in iTunes and wanted to see how much the HD version of a movie was as opposed to the SD version. But for some reason when I tap on HD in only brings up the option to rent the movie and when I tap on SD it gives me the options to both buy and rent. Some movies show both options for HD while most movies I'm looking at can only be rented in HD. One example is "The Blind Side". I wanted to buy it in HD but it only gives me the option to rent it in HD and I definitely do not want to buy it in SD.

Another example is the movie "The Invasion". What's weird is when I scroll down to see the file size of the movie, it gives me sizes for both the 1080p HD version as well as the SD version, but it only gives me the option to buy the SD version.

Info:iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi, iOS 5.1
