Gizmodo reader Alex W. wrote in with another bugging-out MacBook question, this time concerning iTunes and its (in)ability to play movies downloaded in HD/SD. Hive mind, can we help him?

I was wondering if you were aware of problems with iTunes (seemingly when the new retina displays were released). In the past few days iTunes doesn't seem to want to play movies that are downloaded in HD/SD version. It for some reason seems to only pick up that HD is present (says something about the screen resolution not being supported). I can find the exact terminology for you if needed. Just for reference, the stats for my computer are below.
