    Do any of these suggestions help?

    If you unplug the unit for about and minute or so then plug it in again does a small white light come on? It will be on the front of the unit and is the same light that blinks when the remote sends a signal.

    Meanwhile I'll see if there are other suggestions.

    Still looking for a sokution to this problem. Following the directions I linked to above usually clears things up.

    I'm not sure this matters but has the Apple TV been jailbroken?
