    I just woke up my Apple TV 3 from when I put it to sleep last night and when it came on I watched the iTunes 'Movies' and 'TV Shows' icons disappear from the main screen.

    I then went and woke up the Apple TV 2 in the other room and the same thing happened.

    I restarted the ATV3, unplugged it for 15 minutes, plugged it back in, signed out of my iTunes account and back in, looked in Parental Controls (for the first time) and its not enabled, nor are the two items listed in there either.

    Is anyone else seeing (or not seeing) this?

    The US iTunes Store is working for me. So far, Apple isn't reporting any system outages. http://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/

    Yup. I restarted again and they re-appeared. That was very strange.

    Okay it looks like I am not the only having this problem where it tells me Apple TV cannot connect to server, having the same issue with Netflix. But after unplugging it and reconnecting it worked, but I will tell you this is not the first time happening.
