    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?


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

    More details.

    Purchased from iTS or encoded by you?

    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?
