    How many crashes(rebooting crashes) have you got the past 30 days with your Apple TV (2nd & 3nd gen)

    The title says it all. Im asking it because i've want to know whats normal, or the amount of crashes you get, before you can talk about a more serious issue / maybe a hardware problem. :)

    Myself: 2 crashes.
    (first one when being in the Podcast app. Last crash was in the YouTube app)

    *additional info that may be relevant:
    - I don't have cable, so I use my ATVs a lot
    - Use Youtube and Podcasting a lot daily
    - Both ATV2s are Jailbroken (also got 1 ATV3, no JB of course)

    none; and it's running every day for several hours (connected to a Mini with a Pegasus R6)

    Mr. McMac

    I've had none on the two 2nd gen ATV's I own.

    I have both the ATV2 & ATV3 and use each of them daily. I've had zero crashes altogether. But there are some bugs that I think Apple needs to fix in the next iOS release.

    while using netflix

    Zero, nada, none, not a single one!
  20. macrumors 603

    None on my aTV 2 or 3.
  21. macrumors 68000


    I've never had a single crash with ATV2 or 3 that I can recall. ATV1 locked up occasionally and needed the power cycling.
  22. macrumors 6502

    0 i believe.

    I don't think I've had to reboot the aTV2 since before iTunes 1.6.1 came out.

    I had to reboot my cable box last night, though.
  23. macrumors regular


    Three or four on my Apple TV 2, none so far on the 3.
  24. macrumors 604


    I've never had any and I've had the ATV2 since day one.

    I assume your software is up to date?
  25. macrumors 6502a

    1 crash on a ATV2 (didn't reboot, just didn't respond until I unplugged it and made it reboot). In that same time frame I've had home sharing bomb out while a movie was playing dozens of times. Its massively frustrating. I either have to reboot the unit, restart iTunes, or turn home sharing on/off on the ATV. In extreme cases it will continue to drop connection until I reboot my router.
