I do not know it as a fact, but I belive you are running into one of the DRM restructions. They are much stricter with rented content. And a bunch of apps block content on AirPlay. They genreally will not allow DRMed content to be streamed or played on a computers video out ports. Microsoft Media player does the same thing. You should be able to see it on AppleTV directly as long as you are using the same AppleID on both the Mac and ATV.

Same problem on my new MBP w retina display. Happens with both rented and puchased material. It doesn't happen with an old MBP. I've tried wating until download was complete, but still same problem. Sorry, no answer yet.

It will only play if I rented or purchased directly from the Apple TV. It appears many people have asked about this and it seems to be a DRM issue. You can try talking to Apple but from what I can tell, there's nothing you can do about it. Would be happy to find another solution.

It will AirPlay to the Apple TV, the movie just needs to finish downloading first.

But apparently the movie has completely downloaded. It's not in the download list. How can I tell if it's fully downloaded?

Doh! I can play the rental through the Apple TV menu.
