Apple last week released Apple TV Software Update 5.1.1 for second- and third-generation Apple TVs, adding support for the new Up Next feature that debuted in iTunes 11, along with performance and stability improvements. However, there are a number of reports of problems updating over wired Ethernet connections. In some cases, the Apple TV may fail to boot after a failed upgrade.
I'm super happy to announce that I am now a contributor to TidBITS. TidBITS was founded in 1990 and is the oldest existing Internet publication. Thanks to Adam Engst for giving me a chance to write for it.
Note: I thought I had posted this days ago, but apparently not. Sorry folks, this has been a crazy, crazy week.
