    Has anyone else noticed that the AppleTV (1.1) becomes slow to respond, and starts jittering within movies after it has been on for a while (a couple of weeks or so). Another symptom is a failure to connect to iTunes via wireless (constant syncing message).

    I find that I have to pull the plug (literally) on mine every so often to get it back to normal.

    Other than this and the fact that movies can't be put in playlists I'm very happy with my AppleTV. More and More movies are making their way from my collection onto my HD, have had to but an extra TB to store it all on :)

    MTR and HB are your dearest friends when owning an ATV.

    Cheers, Ed.

    Haven't had that problem

    My :apple:TV has essentially been on continuously since the week they came out, and I've never noticed anything like that. Sounds like yours may be faulty. Sorry.
