How do i authorize a device (tv or projector) to play protected movies purchsed in itunes when connected to my ipad?  I am receiving an error message:  "CANNOT PLAY MOVIE  the connected display is not authorized to play protected movies".  I purchased the movies in iTunes and simply want to watch them on my TV or projector when connected to my iPad.


iPad, iOS 5

    Even thought this is an old post I just purchased a HDMI adapter for my iPad 3.  This is the stupidest thing I ever head of.  If I purchase on my iPad I why would Apple care what device I connect to.  I wanted to play a rented move on my Samsung 69" TV and get the above error.  What a pain in the ***.

    PPlease let me know if you ever figured this out.  I purchased the ios to hdmi cable which allows me to use my tv monitor as a screen for iPad, but it won't let me watch iTunes movies
