Like many others, I have had many problems over the past few months with iTunes constantly dropping my AppleTVs, such that I would have to restart iTunes to get it to start again. No one has been able to come up with a solution to this problem. While I don't want to jinx myself, I updated to iTunes 9 last night and thus far the problem of AppleTV dropping out of iTunes seems to have gone away. Have others seen the same thing? If so, this is great news and returns AppleTV to its status as one of my favorite devices.
