    I got a dev. account and have iOS5 on my iPhone 4, and soon iPad 2. Now to get it on the apple tv, but how do you do it? Updates have always come OTA..

    Also, for those who have been testing it, how stable is it?

    Did you read the document titled "Apple TV Software Installation Guide" which is right below the firmware download for Apple TV?

    Its stabile'ish...... Had to restart my iPad twice so far as it lost all airplay capabilities, other than that its all fine.

    Apple TV keeps asking for my account password every time I wake it from sleep which is getting annoying, I was going to update my other ATV's to 4.4 but will wait for a newer beta to land.

    I'm having the same problem too. - I've downloaded the beta and read the installation notes.

    So, we've got to connect the Apple TV to a Mac? - I've been given a, " Mini DisplayPort to HDMi Cable"

    Is that right? I thought it was a Micro USB?
