I have been trying to rent a movie and everytime i get to the end it says that the network time is not set up - but i have set the time via the region and the automatice is off - but still no luck.  Can anyone help?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.

    Assuming this is not the first time you have used your Apple TV

     

    • You might try restarting the Apple TV by removing ALL the cables for 30 seconds.
    • Also try restarting the router.
    • If the problem persists, try a restore, you may want to try the previous procedures several times before doing this.

     

    If this is a new Apple TV, it may also be that your network router is not allowing access to the timeserver, check that your router allows access over port 123.

    Many thanks it now works. Can you answer this question - when renting a movie and it requests your credit card details - can use your your iTunes account instead.  Thanks.

    I have the same problem (with my litle christmas gift).

    How can I check that my router allow access over port 123?
