Anyone w/Apple TV (Gen 2) Run Into This Problem - September 24, 2011, 03:08 PM

Recently tried to update the FW on Apple TV (Gen 2). I don't know what happened but now all I get is a blank screen with the Apple logo in the center while the LED flashes very slowly.

I've tried resetting it and kicking it into DFU mode (Menu + Down for 6 seconds) and got the rapid flashes on the LED like the manual said it would, but it reboots to the same screen.

I then attempted a full factory reset by plugging the USB port into my computer (after removing the power cord like the instructions say), but ITunes doesn't recognize it as being connected.

To be sure it wasn't a laptop issue, I plugged my Iphone in and it ITunes recognized it. So, I shut down and restarted Itunes then shut down and restarted my laptop; nothing. Same thing. ITunes doesn't see the Apple TV box.

Anyone ever run into this prob?

“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
