    I can't get my brand new ATV 2 to activate and register to iOS 5

    I just bought a new ATV 2, plugged it in, found the UDID in Xcode and registered online as one of my devices for iOS 5. I downloaded iOS 5 for ATV 2 and restored it to that version in iTunes.

    Go over to plug it back into my HDTV, it appears to activate but when I check the "about" section, it says it's still running OS 4.4.

    What am I missing here? How do I get it up to speed on iOS 5?

    4.4 is the version of the AppleTV software, the iOS version running for 4.4 is 5.
    So you have installed the beta correctly :cool:
