    Is anyone else having major problems with the Apple TV 2 losing its connection to iTunes.

    Basically, I open iTunes, and it shows up and everything works fine on the Apple TV. Then, after some time after turning the Apple TV off (and I leave iTunes open almost all the time), and turn the Apple TV back on later in the day, my iTunes is shown but when trying to access anything all I get is the white spinning wheel.

    I have to close iTunes and reopen it to reset the connection. This has been happening for a while.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Nope. I've never experienced that. I bet you're using your ATV2 on WiFi right? If you can, try using an Ethernet connection to your ATV2 and Mac. Then you'll know if it's a WiFi issue or not.

    That's how I have mine set up and it works flawlessly.

    Are you using a network drive?

    A number of people have had problems with the aTV2 having trouble reestablishing the connection after it, the computer or the aTV2 have gone to sleep.
