    Same here. No Joy. I will next try and restore from iTunes.



    Anyone else have an idea?

    Just keep restarting it again. Seems the update servers or network are having trouble keeping up. My 3rd is looking like it'll finally complete and I've been retrying since they dropped the code. I tried the restore via iTunes and USB. Did the same thing over and over and finally worked. Same distribution source I'd guess.

    Guessing that needed a ¡ Instead of a !







    P.S. I just figured out how to do that with the iPad keyboard.

    When will the Apple TV 2 be capable of loading iTunes LP and iTunes Extras like the first version does? It doesn't make sense to pay for these files and not be able to view them on your HDTV.

    Will it mirror everything? KN? PPT? iPad/iPhone simulators in Xcode? Web pages?



    If so, this is HUGE. (But I am skeptical).

    Does the NHL app do anything at all if you don't subscribe? Will it at least show highlights for free?

    Until a jailbreak is ready, and Plex is supported, I'm not even considering updating my AppleTVs.

Importing them into iMovie 9 (which has more and better export choices, including Apple TV) didn't work for me, as it dropped lots of special effects and transitions. I ended up saving them as a QuickTime file using the Expert Settings choice, and setting the compressor quality to "Best."



    Imo just used handbrakes, its free and has all the appletv templates

    I have the NHL Centre Ice pacakge and I think I get Gamecentre ONline as well included. I think the NHL app uses that Online login...



    Same thing on boxee and I believe xbox360 and ps3?

    Ever since upgrading to Lion, Plex has been a big fail for me on the iPad2. No one seems to have any idea on how to fix it on the Plex forums either and it is quite a common problem. *sigh*

    Not really and better than nothing. Good topics and short.

    An App Store for the AppleTV would be fantastic! Air Video is all I would need!

    If AppleTV could get a Hulu App, I would be a very happy camper - please oh please!

    Can't seem to find the Trailers, are they hidden away somewhere?



    It's quite understandable that Apple would be targeting their content update to the U.S. as it's their home market and their biggest market but still can't understand why there is no airplay link from BBC iPlayer - surely by now this could have been negotiated given the Beebs willingness to support the platform. Disappointed that the mirroring won't work with iPad1 as this would have been a workaround.

    Hello? Apple? There is a world outside the USA, you know, and we buy a lot of your products. Any chance of some Euro or Asia centric content? Football (soccer) the world game, BBC World Service etc.

    After the upgrade, WSJ works in LAM, but no Netflix!

    SAD!
