Bill Gates was right, I now have a new hobby, trying to get this blasted ATV2 to actually work!

    must admit i also having problems, the lads in the apple shop said to get an airport extreme to sort out the problems. It amy work great with this setup but that is another £140 i have to find. I using it with a O2 Wireless box router and it is very temperamental i can tell you.

    I would not be at all pleased if the guys in the Apple store advised me to buy an airport extreme so that ATV2 could work. I think I would be handing ATV2 back and getting a refund, damned cheek if you ask me.

    what does [_*Bill Gates*_|http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/exec/billg/bio.mspx] have to do with Apple TV (other than that he probably owns a couple) ?

    perhaps if you gave a detailed account of the issue(s) you're having, someone here might be able to help.

    Must say I laughed out loud when I saw your response and realised my mistake, poor old Steve must be scratching his head, I'm jet lagged, that's my excuse.
    I solved my problems this morning when I realised I had the box upside down, I kid you not, right way up it works just fine.
    Cheers

    Hmm, mine wasn't working as it was off-axis and not parallel the table edge - son must have moved it around the same time he tossed by WD Mybook upside down! Repositioned parallel to table edge and it's working better again, though only 3 bars of signal on wi-fi.

    great !

    as for Mr Gates, let's not call a mistake, eh ?

    if it works, it's due to Apple's brilliance. if it doesn't, blame it on you-know-who

    mu ha ha ...
