    Nope.  No fix.  Not even a hint of someone working on it.  I have ATV 1st gen.  Now useless, last week my iMac/Itunes was able to find the ATV and for 24 hours and was able to reload 50% but am unable to find again.

    Everyday hoping for new update for Itunes that will fix. 

    Can't roll back update so am out of luck for the next while.  Wonder how long a car company would stay in biz if their cars stopped working for undetermined amount of time with no feedback from manufacturer.  Resurect Jobs' attention to detail and fix the problems promptly.

    I've had my Apple TV a couple years now and love it when it works.

     

    If the Apple TV does NOT have any storage then why do I constantly get a message from Apple TV saying that its 'full, and you have to delete some content before you can download another movie'.

     

    If it can't store anything, why would Apple TV say its 'full'. ?

     

    The alternative to deleting movies is to 'connect to your Mac'.

     

    I have a new Macbook Pro Retina. Itunes is on - Apple TV is flashing a password for me to enter after clicking 'File>Devices' BUT Apple TV doesn't show up as a device.

     

    I am running Itunes 11.0.1 on both the Macbook & the Apple TV.

     

    None of my movies appear on my Macbook.

     

    I don't want to do a factory restore as I will lose all the movies I have on the Apple TV.

     

    Help.

    Try unplugging the power cord to your apple TV while leaving the micro usb plugged in to both your apple tv and computer.  Worked for me.

    I was having the same problem. I've been trying to restore b/c when I updated to 5.2 that bricked my Apple TV for some reason. I followed the steps to restore, but it kept not showing up as a device in iTunes. Here's how I finally got it to work:

    1. Plug in the micro USB cable to your Mac
    2. Plug in the power to the Apple TV
    3. This is when it should show up in iTunes according to Apple's instructions. But it doesn't
    4. Unplug the power and then plug it back in right away
    5. Then it showed up for me

     

    Hope that helps
