I get this error when my NAS isn't mounted to my laptop before I open iTunes. That's the only time I've seen it, but I don't think the problem is on the ATV side. Make sure you have access to all the movies in iTunes, try using airplay to stream one from your laptop.

Power cycle your router? You've almost guaranteed that it isn't an issue with the AppleTV, so the two remaining culprits are the network or the content.
