I have a situation: I live abroad (I'm an American in Europe), have an American Netflix streaming account and use a VPN to stream Netflix on my computer. I have an appletv and I thought - wouldn't it be nice to stream netflix over my appletv, and watch netflix content on my large flatscreen? I have a VPN, through Astrill, so I did the following. Hooked up my macbook to the LAN out on my router, turned on the VPN and set up a wifi network broadcasting out of my macbook. Then I set my appletv up to access the VPN'd wifi hotspot out of my mac - thinking that if I set the VPN to an American server, then I could stream netflix through my appletv. However, after changing the wifi settings on my appletv (it connected fine), the main menu had mostly vanished! All internet connectivity options (streaming netflix and the like) had vanished, though stuff like youtube was still there. What went wrong? Any ideas?
