ATV2 will not play some movies - wheel ticks, no error
Been having an issue where some movies will not play on my ATV2. After I select a movie to play on my home theater setup, the wheel will spin (or tick) endlessly - will not come back with an error.
They play fine on the computer - iMac / iTunes - just won't stream to the ATV2.
If I Fast Forward the ATV2, I see a frozen screen shot of the proper spot in the movie - but the movie will not stream. Last night I tried about 6 different movies - none would play.
After checking for software updates (none needed) - rebooting the ATV2, rebooting the iMAC, resetting the wireless config in the ATV2 - some movies that did not play earlier would now play, but not all of them.
I download Apple format movies or use Handbrake to convert them to ATV2 format.

I would love an answer to this. Seems like it may have something to do with Airport Extreme and Express being on same DNS or something like that. When I try to play on my ATV2 (never had an ATV1), the play/pause button seems to just get stuck on pause. When I try to access the "Apple TV" on my iTunes Airplay speakers, it says someone else is using it or I get an error message. Would love input.
