Fixed:Apple TV "An error occurred loading this content. Try again Later"

“An error occurred loading this content. Try again later”
I get this notification while trying to download or watch movies in Apple tv 2. I started trying some of the ideas that suggested for me. Here there are some ideas that helped me to reset this problem.
Solution 1: HDMI handshake problem

  1. Unplug the HDMI cables from tv and then from Apple TV.
  2. Turn off the powers of tv and apple tv, let it stay still for about 30-60 seconds.
  3. Spigot HDMI cables when the power is off.
  4. At first turn on the tv power and then ATV power.

This method worked for me.
Solution 2: Changing the settings of HDMI output
In the audio and video section, switch the HDMI output from Auto to YCbCr. This worked for me.
Solution 3: Connect the internet cable to the ATV directly
I noticed that the 10/100 5 port is sending the internet to a variety of devices, including ATV2. I disconnected the feed from the switch and plugged it directly to the ATV2, without unplugging or rebooting the ATV2 the problem went away. Everything worked for me.
Solution 4: Rebooting Apple tv
Reboot the AppleTV by pressing the menu and down buttons at the same time and then release both buttons.  The AppleTV will reboot. The device reboot seems to solve the problem.
apple tv restart
The only thing you have to do is just hold on the menu and down buttons for several seconds until the blue led starts blinking on the front of the ATV rapidly. The ATV reboots by releasing the menu and down button.
Solution 5: Solving the error by changing the setting
change the settings

  1. Go to settings.
  2. Then audio and video option
  3. You could find  Dolby Digital option – “change it from Auto to On”

Leave all other settings like Audio Output to “Auto” and HDMI Output to “Auto”
This worked for me.
Solution 6: Solving problem by connecting modem in right way

  1. Turned the wifi off on MacBook.
  2. Unplug the modem and router, and the ATV2.
  3. After few seconds connect the modem, router, and the ATV2 and MacBook.

Then, I selected a tv show stream and paused it as soon as it started to make sure it loaded. Once the gray bar had gone along enough, I hit play. No issues yet.

Solution 8: Fixing AppleTV to rent a movie

So much for Apple ease of use. I've tried most of these and still nothing. My iPhone Airplay to AppleTV worked fine two weeks ago. So WTF?
