Both my Generation 1 AppleTV units suddenly cannot connect to the iTunes Store. One says it's not available even though it still shows store menu options and the other one doesn't show any store related menu options any longer and keeps trying to load the store or something (my own movies keep reloading their icons as if it's trying to connect). The latter one is slowing the ATV down (i.e. if I load XBMC there's some weird spotty lag which I assume has to do with it trying desperately to connect to the iTunes store in the background). That one was running XBMC last night and apparently crashed out of it back to the Apple menu. The other one that simply can't connect was in the Apple interface all night. Given that the iTunes store is working just fine working fine on my ATV Gen2 unit and also inside iTunes itself on my Mac Mini Server, I have to wonder if Apple has done something that only affects AppleTV Gen1 units, say perhaps cancelling all iTunes Store support for Gen1 units without telling anyone and leaving the units attempting to communicate with services apparently no longer there? Given they never officially announced ending update support for Gen1 units and never officially announced dumping Safari for Windows, I certainly would NOT put it past them to do something so underhanded. Does anyone else with an ATV Gen1 still running the AppleTV interface (i.e. not turned into CrystalUbuntu) experience an outage right now also or is it just crapping out with unbelievable odds simultaneously on both my units for no apparent reason? Edit: I just sent Apple a bug report. It claims they will get back to me within 24 hours. They actually have in the past regarding rental issues, etc. on the 1st Gen units. I really hope they didn't just decide to brick all ATV Gen1 units (i.e. that feedback loop attemping to load the iTunes store is screwing things up). I guess I'd have to convert them both to CrystalUbuntu/XBMC if that happens. Oddly enough, I just got my CrystalHD card in the mail a few days ago (haven't installed it yet) for my home theater unit now that I have an Ethernet connection connected to the unit. I was going to leave the Apple interface for now until I get my 1080p 3D projector later this year, but XBMC only is better than nothing.
