    Best I can tell this is what the problem is and the update has not fixed it, occasionally my ATV hooked to my Onyko 605 via HDMI will either give me

    1. A Black Screen but I can hear the Audio

    2. Video but no Sound.

    Either can be fixed by pulling the plug on the ATV and having it restart. So I can only assume it's having an issue with the HDMI Handshaking. Anyone else experiencing these problems? Are there any settings I can set to fix this, I think I have the HDMI Setting set to automatic.

    Try this?

    I had a similar issue with a particular TV that I used to use. Either the screen would take on a pink-ish hue, or the sound would be distorted.

    It turned out to be solved by simply unplugging the HDMI cable, waiting a few seconds, and then re-connecting it. The AppleTV would then re-sync its HDMI signal, and all would be well.

    Maybe you could try this instead of re-starting the AppleTV completely. :)
