"AFAIK iTunes will have to re-establish a new connection to your AppleTV. What I suggest you to do is to ""tweak"" your Apple TV so you can SSH in and transfer your files out, then re-connnect and resync.

To ""tweak"" your Apple TV for SSH access, you will need something called a ""Patchstick""

Once the steps in the link above are done, your AppleTV is ready for SSH access. SSH into your AppleTV, and copy all your video files out.

Next, invest in more storage, and never leave single copies of precious data in a single location any more."
