Can't view TV Shows with Apple TV - PROBLEM SOLVED

Neither streaming or after being Synced...full sound, but just a black screen. I get the menu bar at the bottom, and can FFW/REW no problem, but no picture.

FWIW, I can view movies just fine.

Any ideas?

***EDIT***

HUGE props to aristobrat for the tip - a simple reboot fixed the issue.

Purchased from iTS, all in the last 72 hours...

Everything else is fine - movies (both personal encodes and purchased from iTS), trailers, etc.

They play fine in iTunes, but not over Apple TV

have you tried unplugging the AppleTV, waiting a few seconds, and then plugging it back in?
