    My :apple:TV has the blinking yellow light and won't boot even if I use the Apple remote (menu and -) to reset. I get to the Apple logo and then nothing. Any suggestions? TIA

    It could be a failed drive.

    Or not. I had the same problem but it turned out not to be the drive. I never did get it working, and it was out of warranty. Now it's sitting on a shelf collecting dust while I decide whether to buy a new one or a mini to replace it.

    Thanks, Jessica. I tried menu/- thing but can't get the screen to show up. It seems like the :apple:TV is trying to restart, but can't. I think I might as well take it to the Apple Store and see what they say.
