    Last week my 1st generation Apple TV finally died. The thing had run nearly flawlessly since it was purchased in April of 2007. Now the power light won't come on at all, and there is no activity. I am pretty impressed that we got nine years of service out of it. It has been replaced in our entertainment center by a 3rd generation Apple TV.

    So this got me thinking, I wonder if I could fix it? My first guess is that the power supply went bad, given that if failed suddenly. Anyone fixed any 1st Gen Apple TVs?

    You might be able to find one that had a drive failure and swap your drive into it...
