    I am from Canada and for the past few days only two icons show up on my apple tv2: the computer for the homesharing and the settings. I my software is up to date. Is there an issue in Canada or have I changed something in settings?

    It means you are not connected to a network, check the settings.

    I had the same thing last week. My Apple TV is connected via ethernet, yet did not show a valid IP address. Rebooting, resetting the Apple TV didn't help.

    I ended up using a Micro USB cable to connect the Apple TV to my Mac and restoring it in iTunes.

    The cable doesn't come with the Apple TV (any doesn't the Apple TV use the regular 30 pin connector???), so you will have to get one before you can do the restore - or take it in to the Apple Store.

    After the restore everything was fine...

    The same thing happened to me. I unplugged both cables, then plugged them back and it works now.

    Good luck.
