    Is anyone having issues loading a movie in iTunes since the new update. Tried to watch Jurassic park tonight and it said it would take 5 hours 38 minutes until it will play. Then tried Ant-Man and it said 2 hours 42 minutes. On 9.0 I had no issues at all. Movies would load fast and play great.

    Went to my PlayStation 4, turned on vudu and tried a movie I own and it loaded instantly. Seems to only be my Apple TV since the update. I have Verizon fios 50mbps

    Any suggestions?

    tvOS 9.1 seems to have smoothed out some of the hiccups that tvOS 9.0 had.

    I'm not having any issues playing iTunes content, I actually just watched Ant Man last night.

    When you say reboot it, that just means going to the settings and restarting? I have done that a few times. Or is there a hard re-boot? I was going to restore everything but was hoping to not have to do that.

    Maybe your bandwidth is being used up downloading a screensaver update. They are huge. What interval do you have the screensaver update set to?

    not at home, but I'm pretty sure I have it setup to start 15min. I will restart my router and restart the apple tv when I get home, hopefully that will help. Don't understand why it would help (I'm not a computer guy really so maybe it will) when everything else on my network is working flawlessly.

    Sorry. I don't mean the amount of time it takes for the screensaver to come on. I was referring to how often your Apple TV downloads new screensaver packs. They are more than half a Gig each. Having them set to update often could seriously impact some slower internet connections.

    Could you please point out where this setting is? I do not recall seeing this anywhere.
