    Have you tried repopulating these files.

    I see, have you tried a second restart, have you tried re-downloading one.

    I'm having the same problem. Artwork from Podcast Favorites are displaying the generic graphic, and because it doesn't list the podcast name until you select it, you really just have a grid of the same graphic with no way to know what they are.

    I'll have to try removing and re-adding them, but I don't want to have to do this often as I have about 30 favorites saved.

    Same Issue here and tried a reboot (power disconnect and reconnect) and images still does not show up. Starting to think is one of many software bugs.

    I have the same prob. Rebooted and now have only half the artwork shown. Wacky. Not a huge issue...but troubling just the same.

    Hey, I too am having this issue. Since I have nearly 30+ favs I DO NOT want to erase and hunt through all the providers again. This must be a bug. Please fix.

    I am experiencing this issue as well. Rebooted numerous times and nothing has changed - generic Podcast icons remain. Deleted and re-added a few and those ones are back to normal.

    Same problem. The podcast artwork disappeared about a week after I got my Apple TV. I'm connected directly, not through a computer.

    I too am having this problem with no other solution but to delete and re-add to favorites, which is very time consuming and annoying—one of the many problems with ATV.

    I really wish Apple didn't rush this product out the door and can only hope they do not start behaving this way with the rest of their products. perhaps they need a bigger staff instead of burning out the few they have.

    I'm having this problem too. Sure, you can re-add each Favourite Podcast, but what's to say the Apple TV won't forget the Favourite Podcast artwork again? Why did it forget it the first time?

    Perhaps it forgets the Favourite Podcast artwork if you turn the Apple TV off at the wall? Some would say don't turn it off at the wall, but it's the only way to make it usable again, whenever the Apple TV freezes up.

    No, my AppleTV is never unplugged and it still loses the Favorites Podcasts artwork (some of them)

    Just a bug to be fixed eventually.
