    I've had this problem multiple times when updating the Apple TV. The solution for me was to connect it to the network via Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi.

    I also first got "update unsuccessful", now trying again and getting "The AppleTV update could not be downloaded at this time".

    Did Apple realize there's a bug at the last minute and pull the release? Seems like it.

    OK, I've had 3 failures now. I'm going to back off and try again later. I have my hands full with OSX and iPad right now.

    Direct download: AppleTV2,1_4.4_9A334v_Restore.ipsw

    If you can get through Apple's traffic and download it through here, you can update via a micro usb plugged directly into your Mac with iTunes.
