    I'm using the ATV3. Any issues or things broken with this latest release?

    Still have trauma from years back after an update messed a lot of things up and took months before the next one was released that cleaned it all up. So just checking with you guys to make sure... :)

    Safe here as well..

    I've always had issues with ATV 3 loosing Wi-fi connections from day 1, so i don't use Wi-fi anymore to connect. Its not a signal issue as its its signal in strong under "About" its just decides to disconnect randomly, so i always use Eithernet now.

    W-Fi Channel is uncluttered as its set to manual mode.

    Really the only solution :

    You could do a "Reset All Settings" from Settings >> General instead, but you may run to the same problem later anyway.

    Doing a restore will restore ATV back to factory defaults, so you'll need to sign back into iTunes, Home sharing or other apps like Netflix
