    Has anyone had any luck updating their ATV from version 5.1.0 to the new 5.1.1? Mine keeps failing (via wired connection).

    Is YouTuber still there?

    I'm concerned that it is going to go missing one of these updates?

    was hoping that it would finalize organize TV shows per show instead of season now that iTunes does, no luck

    From the release notes, only new feature is for Music and the ability to see the Up Next info (which is a new feature in iTunes 11). Everything else are stability/maintenance items which are not specifically defined.

    it keeps saying the update was not successful for me, apple tv 3rd gen.

    im gonna try wifi by i doubt that will work.

    okay, i can confirm there is an issue updating the apple tv 3rd gen if it is using the ethernet for connection.

    i tried wi fi and it worked first time.

    finally.

    Anyone with netflix issues have their problems (streaming reloads etc) fixed with this update?

    I went for it and upgraded the works: Apple TV, iTunes 11 and Remote app. I find Apple TV is more responsive and the Remote App on the iPad mini is much better (less lag especially in the search field).

    Just an FYI: Apple could remove YouTube from the aTV any time they want to... It's Internet based so they could yank it whenever they want even without an update. Remember how Hulu and apple events appeared without an update? And then Apple Events left without an update? Same thing applies here sadly. But I don't see YouTube leaving anytime soon anyway, because of the lack of App Store.

    Same here. The progress bar does seem to move occasionally though.

    Same here. It's been stuck for ten minutes which prompted me to check the forums.

    Home Movies... another head scratcher...

    Home Videos in iTunes 11 - YAY! How awesome - except you cant stream to your apple TV via Home Sharing... I mean really - how is this possible? Its such the little things that Apple keeps missing on these days... to offer a feature like this is great - then to cripple it in the most obvious way is just plain irresponsible... these little things are driving me nuts.

    Have one 3rd gen on ethernet and a 2nd gen on wifi, both got updated no problem! I love the fact that i can listen to music without even opening the tv, now that the remote app shows ur music, albums and playlist from itunes match! Gotta love it!!

    Do you mean browsing via atv to your homeshare and playing videos that way or trying to airplay from mac. For me everything is exactly the same. I updated itunes and apple tv and even changed the video type of my home movies to home video in itunes. I had already assigned them a custom genre. In itunes, they now have their own section in Movies, and under genre as well. On the atv the interface is exactly as before--one big Movies section with all my playlists or by genre. My home videos still stream fine. I was hoping home video would be a new entry but no such luck with the bastard stepchild of ios. Remote app update is very nice tho.
