    I recently switched from a ATV2 to the new ATV3. My front light on the ATV2 would go out after some time. Not the case with the ATV3, it seems to be on all the time. If this normal?

    Thanks

    Goto Setting->General->Sleep-After and change the sleep time, the light wont go out until the ATV sleeps, the default is 1 hour.

    I have noticed this too.

    When I go to HDMI 1 the Apple TV3 is asleep but the light is on.

    Also, I have sold my Apple TV2's, but can anybody who has both say whether the Apple TV3 light is brighter or bigger. I don't remember it being as intrusive on the Apple TV2's.

    I am fairly sure that this was fixed in yesterdays update.

    My light also seems to be much lower intensity; just like my old Apple TV2 was. Much better.

    Anybody else noticed it?
