Anyone? I'd be shocked if there are no other ATV1 owners that have experience with this.
I mean, it's pretty much anyone who has ever siimply done a factory reset + install latest ATV update.
I realize that there are probably way more ATV2 and ATV3s in the market, but noone has recently updated an ATV1 from FR?
Does anyone know if there's a way to update to the current sw a different way? I have no desire to jailbreak it, just update to Apple's official latest version.

I recently did a factory reset of my ATV1 ( last week) and upgraded the Mac I use to sync to it with ( late 2008 MacBook w/OSX 10.8.2 ) to iTunes 11 yesterday. It still shows up in iTunes, though I haven't tried to sync anything TO it since then.
I did notice that all of the album covers ( and whatever they're called for other media like tv shows ) are all now generic gray icons when I go to them under the Apple TV section in iTunes.

Thanks for replying Andy.
When you did the FR, did you then initiate a software update on the ATV? On my Mac Pro, the ATV icon, which had always been there, dissappeared after upgrading to iTunes 11 and not come back, before or after the ATV FR.

I selected the update option in the AppleTV's menu and it said there was no update.
Not sure I believe that since there's now a video resolution ( 480i ) that ISN'T supposed to be there with the last update to the 1st Gen. AppleTV ( 3.0.2) and wasn't if I remember correctly. But I haven't had a chance to follow up on that. Can't remember how to get to the daignostic menus that tell you that kind of info.
Note: My AppleTV isn't jailbroken but it was before the FR.
