    Since the recent Airport Utility update and associated Airport Express and Time Capsule firmware update, my Apple TV does not speak to my mac mini been told to check they are on the same wifi network. Don't know why, because up until the update, the two were very happy together. And they are too far away to link with ethernet cable. My Apple TV (AT2) is upto date. Weird thing is that when I play music from my mac mini to speakers attached to the Aiport Express it works fine. So clearly the wifi system is working. Seems to me, the Apple TV now can't see my library.

    Anyone else experiencing similar issues?

    I've had problems with incredibly slow streaming in the last few days where previously there were none.

    Mac Mini hard-wired to an AEBS along with an Apple TV2 also connected by Ethernet. Used to have fast and reliable streaming, but now for tv shows and movies the buffering bar is just slightly ahead of playback leading to frequent stuttering and pauses.

    This is well covered elsewhere, but the SU update has screwed many a setup...Including mine.

    Download and re-run the COMBO update, I had to do 3 Macs that turned into Beacballs twice, but the combo updater, Dated FEB1 resolved all my wifi and app issues.
