I was trying to login to the Itune store through AT2, after this 2 icon Issue.
Not sure, how, but the report issue is gone?
May be AT2, keeps on trying in the background to get the missing informations during the Upgrade.

I also have the same issue. Before the update the icons youtube, flickr, Photostream, radio, etc where shown in ATV. Now i updated the new firmware and all the icons disappeared except Computers and Settings.

yeap, have the same problem. I live in Hong Kong.
I updated to the latest software on my Apple TV 2 on 8 March and all I can see now is "Computers" (Home sharing) and "Settings".
No icons for Youtube or anything else.
I have already rebooted/restarted apple tv2, time capsule, internet modem etc. Still no solution.

ok found the answer.
Have to select a location under settings>general. Since Hong Kong isnt on the list I didnt select before, so selected USA and all the old icons/options have appeared (or rather a new skin for the old icons)

I have the same 2 icon computers/setting problem after the update.
Tried switching my location to USA but this did not resolve the issue.
Is the apple tv checking my ip address and noting I'm not in the USA and blocking me ?

I got the same problem after software update. My version now is 5.0 (4099). Any idea?

Be sure you are logged in to the I-tunes store with your account information. Once you are logged in to the store all the icons will appear. Many more icons will now appear than before the 5.0 update. I am in Dubai, UAE and log in to the United States store. It seams to be working fine now.
Youtube was the only function of AppleTV that actually worked. My home sharing drops every 5-10 minutes. I have never been able to watch one single movie or listen to one complete CD without it dropping. i gave up on Apple TV one year ago and now use it for a paperweight. The kids like youtube on the TV. But you dont really need AppleTV to browse Youtube on your TV.

my apple tv now up and running - ensure you are signed into your US itunes account.

I have your answer. The same happened to me. All icons one day, the next only computers and settings. I tried making sure the account is set to US and even restarted and unplugged unit. Still didn't work.
What it was was my just expired credit card on my iTunes account.
Once I updated it, everything came back. Apple needs to look into this because the features unrelated to an iTunes account like YouTube or Netflix or even the movie trailers should always be available regardless of a valid iTunes account.
