I have just read that there are two Apple tv3 updates, one for the 2013 version and one for the 2012 version. Could it be that it has downloaded the wrong firmware?

Also if Apple have bricked the device with a dodgy update, are they likely to replace these?

Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Ive just tried mine this morning. It's downloaded the new update, then it says "Restoring Apple TV" then after 10 mins it says that the update has failed and gives the error code 1611.

Some people have said it's the micro USB cable and that people should try different ones, as they are not all the same. But it opens iTunes when this cable is connected and it tries to update the software, so the cable is fine. Can't see what else it could be.

I wil try to call Apple today in order to find out what the situ is. I am not holding out much hope, because on another forum, one guy contacted them and they told him that part of the agreement when you accept the terms and conditions of the update, is that if it goes wrong and renders your equipment useless, then they are not liable. What a mess!

Apple does not like bad PR give them a call plus you do not always know the full story on he said she said.

Just checked my ATV3 and update to v6 offered. Downloaded OTA. No problems to speak of. No iTunes Radio for us Brits yet though.
