I have been sitting at a black screen watching the circle spin on the buffer bar for a good ten minutes now and my youtube video has not even started! This is not my only performance issue - my ATV struggles with tasks as simple as airplaying only audio from my MBP. The Apple TV is plugged into ethernet. However, I am using an ethernet splitter with a max speed of 10 Mbps, but the xbox is on the same splitter and I have no issue with that. Might it be better to run the ATV off wifi (I doubt it because I'm in the basement). What can I do to improve this? Can I troubleshoot it? Should I try getting a replacement? Any help is appreciated. Edit: I fixed my issue by switching to wifi! What a nice surprise. How do I switch this thread to resolved, or delete it? Thanks.
