    Anyone's AppleTV Gen 2 not working after the iOS 5 upgrade? For the last two days I get the same message saying 'Netflix not available. See netflix.com/support. But where I got there there's nothing about the error message and AppleTV.

    I tried a restore and a reboot of the AppleTV and no go so far. Any other suggestions?

    Netflix works fine for me after iOS 5 update on iPad and ATV2.

    I got it a few times, but power cycled the ATV2 and it worked.

    I sorta got it to work. I unplugged the power for several minutes, then I was able to get to the Netflix menu and watch a movie. However, after the movie I went back to the menu then got the same error message even after successfully connecting and watching a movie. I just don't understand. :(

    Thank god someone else is having this problem! Mine keeps telling me username/password is not correct since Saturday evening when I upgraded. Tried to restore, unplug, reboot, nothing. NF works on every other iDevice perfectly with the same password.

    I know what you mean. NF works on my Blu-Ray, Wii, and other Apple devices, just not the AppleTV after the upgrade (it's working now, but after I unplugged it again lol).

    Friend: Hey can we watch Netflix?
    Me: Sure, let me unplug/plug it
    Me (inside voice): embarrassing
