    Second generation AppleTV, 1.5mbps internet, wired.

    I've run into a problem where when attempting to play a selection from my Instant Queue, the loading wheel spins indefinitely (once, and only once, I actually got an error [111]). So, naturally, I Googled around and the general consensus was to reset the device by disconnecting the power for 15 seconds. I do so... about 25 times, I even left the thing unplugged for 30 minutes to no avail.

    So, I restored to factory defaults with a fresh iOS install. Still unable to load the video. Everything else loads (lists, icons, etc.) just not the video itself.

    I read about this being a widespread issue back in late November / early December, but haven't seen anything recently about it. Anyone else experiencing this, or know of a fix?

    After receiving mine today with nearly the same exact experience the google told me to manually set dns to 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4 while leaving everything else the same.
