    Just installed on my gen 3, can't find anything new though, but I do think I see a boost in performance.

    It fixed the Radio App - with 7.0 it would freeze / error after about 10 minutes. This has been fixed - fixed for me and several people on Apple support forums. Havnt seen anyone post they are still having the problem. Was a known issue by a senior Apple TV advisor.

    Has this resolved the issue folk were having about their Apple TV disappearing from the network when it is in sleep mode?

    I didn't update my software the last time as I noticed people having issues.

    Unfortunately, the problem persists, at least for me.

    Is it just an ethernet issue?

    I don't have this problem.

    I always use wifi but you could test out your theory by unplugging the ethernet cable to simulate your network going down and seeing if the peer-to-peer over wifi works but I'm not sure if your ATV must be first configured to communicate with your network over wifi.

    I had the same issue, but unplugging mine from Ethernet and using Wi-Fi fixed it

    Has the latest release broken anything? Just thought I'd ask based on past history of issues stemming from such "updates"... ;)

    Yes. It appears to be a problem with just Ethernet users.

    Unfortunately that only lists the security content of the update. There may be other changes/fixes as well, but they aren't going to list them on that page.
