Thanks. Your helped me decide return it. I am not even trying to do wifi or usb-via-computer because if ethernet doesn't work, then there is a problem, even if it gets fixed after update via one of the other two methods.

It was indeed the ethernet. I exchanged apple tv for a new one, same problem. So I tried wifi like you said and it worked. Very strange, it usually works the other way. If you have a problem turn wifi off and plug the ethernet cable.
