    Since having the ATV4 and updating it to the first ATV4 update I've noticed wireless connection issues. The ATV will forget the network connection but when I go into the Network Connections no wireless APs show up. It's a really weird issue and I figured it would be fixed after updating to the next tvOS version. I'm still having the same issues. I haven't tried resetting the Apple TV but I'm curious if anyone else is having the same issues with their Apple TV. I saw a few posts around the web and in Apple discussions, but it wasn't resolved, one user even replaced their Apple TV with a new one to try and resolve the issue. I had the same issue using an Airport Extreme and my current Airport Time Capsule. I can restart the Apple TV and network connectivity is restored. I've since hooked up an Ethernet cable and even after long periods of sleep it doesn't drop the connection, which I didn't expect that to happen.

    It's either something with your network or you need to exchange a defective ATV.

    Got them looking at it now, it's a first world problem, but I'm really missing that ATV4 right now, had to go back to the ATV3 and it's a night and day experience.
