Apple Remote Play

I just bought a brand new MacBook Pro and when I use the remote control feature and try to load videos that I've downloaded on the iTunes music store, nothing plays. Has this happened to anyone else?

Walk through the steps for us. At what point does "nothing play"?

Response by poster: I hit menu on the remote. That cool screen loads up with a "whoosh." I click MOVIES. And then from that point on, anything I select--whether it's a movie trailer, or something on my hard drive--the player doesn't play anything. I see the timeline thing at the bottom so I know it thinks it's playing---there's just no sound or images. Can anyone explain this?

New Macs quite often ship with old software and early versions of Front Row are buggy. Go to System Preferences > Software Update > Check Now and make sure you have everything installed.

Have you authorized iTunes on this new computer yet to be part of your iTMS account? (Advanced -> Authorize Computer…) Do the videos play in iTunes but not in Front Row?
