Is there a forum or somewhere that discusses the difference between Rental Blurays and Retail? Features / missing audio etc?

Not that I know of, but you can start one. There are a few movies that are different, but so far is mainly the HD audio is removed. Other than that not much.

Hunger Games doesn't have an HD sound track for rentals.

It may need to be more specific than simply "rental" as each rental company may have a different version, or a different version at different points in time. On the Netflix disc rental discussion thread it's been discussed recently. Extras are not accessible in some cases, in some cases BluRays only have 5.1 instead of 7.1 soundtracks (but not all). http://www.avsforum.com/t/969946/netflix-bd-disc-rental-discussion-thread/8130

"I realize that somebody playing free music isn't as commercial as a hamburger stand. But is it because you can eat a hamburger and hold it in your hand and you can't do that with music? Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz
