Apple TV Synching Solution

Having trouble synching your Apple TV? I've had issues on and off and found a few tricks to get things going.

The most likely culprit is your router. I have an old D-Link router, and I have always had issues going through it. I put a switch between my Apple TV, Computer and the router and things worked much better. I went from synching working 10% of the time to 90% of the time.

Apple TV 2.0

It's been about a week since Apple TV went 2.0. The experience so far has been good. Not perfect but good. I still get 3689 firewall errors. But after reading a bunch of forums I'm convinced it is a problem with my router. I'll report on that again if I find more info.

As for the new software I think it is a good update. I find it interesting how far the focus has gone to the iTunes store. Under every section there are several subsections that relate directly to the store, and a "My" section that holds my stuff. That means the iTunes store is 1 level deep, but my stuff is 2 levels deep.

AppleTV Upgrade Delayed 2 Weeks

Lame. Putting it in a footnote of the MacBook Air announcement is double lame.

Apple TV 1.1

We are expecting the 2.0 update any day now, and I must say I'm looking forward to it. But I thought before it comes out I'd give my impressions of how the Apple TV works right now.

Just after the announcement at MacWorld that the Apple TV would be updated in 2 weeks I purchased one of my own. It's a love hate relationship for me. I plugged the Apple TV into my network, entered a code on my mac and the content I selected synched up with the Apple TV. A wonderfully Apple experience. It just worked, and did what I expected it to. Thanks to those who tested first on the internet, because it works great in 480i mode on my TV.
