Apple TV stuck on setting date and time

    I read in another discussion that you can turn off your routers firewall temporarily and it will work. I did that. I turned off my apple tv (3rd gen) and then I turned off my routers firewall. Then I turned my apple tv back on and made sure the time setting was set to automatic. Then it let me set my iTunes login and everything was fine. I turned my firewall back on and it all works now. Try that. I'm not saying it will work for everyone, but it worked in my case.

    Your suggestion worked for me. I have a 2nd Gen Apple TV and I was able to get past the time/date issue by temporarily disabling my router's firewall. Thank you very much!

    Thanks for your support. I found myself in front the same problem. After close to 1 hour trying everything I decided to look for help in the Apple Support Community as official support says nothing about it. I have turned off my router`s firewall, restarted the Apple TV 2nd Gen and everything works properly now. At last, I switched on back the routers firewall. Thanks for your 5 stars support.

    I am a bit ignorant on all this tech stuff but I don't think I'm using a router, just a modem.  I've read through several of these responses and I still can't get my date and time to set and I'm getting thoroughly peeved at having to re-enter everything over and over just to get back to the same non-working issue I still have.  Any other suggestions?
