    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)

    (I bought it the day it was available from the on-line store)

    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.

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

    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.

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

    I assume your software is up to date?

    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.
