Having the same problems here, with Philips TV. No other issues, just with the ATV2.
Even with Apple it's possible for something like this to happen. They simply cannot make everything 100% correct the first time. But I think it's horrible that they didn't correct it in this new version of iOS. They should make this a high priority issue, because else at least they will be getting mine back!
(although I love it when it works).
Why your Hotlinestaff doesn´t know this Problem? They told me, they hear that the first time!!!
Are you nuts?
And in your Store stands this:
Kompatibel mit High-Definition Fernsehgeräten mit HDMI und 720p 60/50 Hz2, darunter auch gängige Modelle folgender Hersteller: Hitachi, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, NEC, Panasonic, Philips, Pioneer, Samsung, Sony, Sharp, Toshiba, Vizio, Westinghouse.

I just spoke to Apple support engineers earlier today asking them why the fix was not included in yesterday's ATV2 software upgrade. Previously they explained me that it would most likely be fixed through a software upgrade. Well we have all learned by now that this did not work.
Contrary to Bachmaier's support staff experience, in NL they seem to be perfectly aware of this issue at Apple Support. However they have no clue on how and when this will be fixed.....just keep waiting......
They should update their store site to say: This product will have extra features on Sony, Philips, and Panasonic HDTVs: Free psychedelic effects ... every now and then
Actually I returned the unit because I suspect a hardware problem, not solvable through firmware.
We are not speaking about an ordinary interconnection interface here, but HDMI with HDCP. HDMI with HDCP is the product of the idiots of the media industry, mandating encryption in the digital link between a player and a TV set. An insane thing. Such complexity can and does lead to incompatibility and reliability problems.
I suspect that the chips involved on the HDCP and HDMI handshake are "black boxes" and we are not talking about a simple problem in the Apple firmware, but a chip issue.
Just an educated guess, but... I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a hardware exchange program to solve this. Just in case I returned it. I will gladly buy one if I can be sure that all the issues have been nailed. If the problem hasn't been solved in a month... looks bad.
I updated to 4.1 last night. No resolution or funky color issues at all so far. I used my Apple TV for about 3 hours total since the update. I too have a Sony TV.
Here’s my details:
TV: Sony KDL52XBR4
AVR: Pioneer Elite - VSX-84TXSi
Connection: HDMI daisy-chain. ATV --> AVR --> TV
I have my AVR set to up-convert ATV to 1080i. (I confirmed ATV is sending 720P via the menu)
I just wanted to provide my info incase it helps.
Is there any chance this issue is related to firmware in the televisions? Or perhaps bad cables? It does seem odd that it primarily affects Sony and Philips televisions. I have a 2nd Gen Apple TV attached to a Sony 40" LCD that is a couple of years old. I upgraded my Apple TV last night and had NO issues before or after.
its not related to the Sony TV, I even updated the firmware last night be be 100% sure.
I've currently got,
a HDMI sat box, works fine
a HDMI dvd player works fine
a HDMI console works fine
a 1st gen ATV via HDMI works fine
Changed all the cables around too to be sure.
a new black ATV2, breaks every 20 mins.
Glad you got lucky Walter, but for the rest of us, IT *****
I've NEVER had an issue before.
I have been following this discussion for about two weeks having the same problem as many others here. As I see it, it is definitely not a cable or TV firmware problem. All other devices works properly with the same HDMI cable (blueray player, computers etc.). It does not concern all Sony or Philips TVs, just certain models but I can't see the pattern. Reading all the 22 Pages of this discussion it gets clearer and clearer that it is an Apple TV 2 problem, hard- or software. I talked to an Apple TV expert about a week ago and they were aware of the problem and working on it …
I upgraded last night and nothing changed, disappointing.
I will give it a second try with Apple support but if they don't give me a perspective for a solution I will send my ATV2 back to Apple and wait for the release of a working one. Too bad, it could be a great product.
Come on Apple! You're dealing with a growing image leak!
