    Hello, DennisJay.


    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.


    TCP port 123 is used to communicate with a network time server.

    If your router is blocking this port it will never set the time.


    For more information on this, take a look at this article:

    Apple TV: TCP and UDP ports and protocols used



    Also it needs an active internet connection.

    Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation): Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections



    Also, you can hit the menu button on your remote which will bring you to the main Apple TV menu.
