I rented a movie from iTunes.  I got it to start playing on my Mountain Lion MBPro.  When I tried to Airplay it to my AppleTV to view on a larger screen, the audio came through but not the video which turned into gray and white checkerboard boxes on both the mac and the appletv.  Turned off airplay and the movie started to play normally again.  Anyone have a solution to this or is Apple specifically blocking someone from streaming some content to the AppleTV?  The movie was still downloading, but would play on my Mac and should have been able to stream.
