took me 5 minutes to download on a university connection. maybe their servers are getting pounded.
With 2.0.1 i had been having problems with airtunes and itunes randomly disconnecting every 3-5 songs. hitting play would start the music again. Hopefully this resolves the slight instability in airtunes.
also: my unit restarted 5 times during the update process (aka, i saw the apple logo 5 times in between no signal on the tv)
update: menu's feel much smoother to me. much smoother.
Man, I sure hope it fixes some of the random glitches that I've experience since getting my 40GB two weeks ago. All sorts of lockups, loosing connection to iTunes, not always showing all my iTunes content, etc. And I'm all ethernet connected too.
I personally like the 1.x interface with rotating icons and a list of menus better. I'm not a big fan of the left right double pane with the whatever you saw last background fade. The icons were much better. But we're just talking gui here not functionality. 2.x rocks otherwise.
I turned on wide-channels on my extreme, and sync'd a large movie (2gb) to my AppleTv without any dropout. Prior to this update, if I used wide-channels, it would never finish synching it .. would always time-out in different places on the same movie. Seems to be fixed??!?!?!?!!?!!!!
