My Apple TV says it has an update but it keeps timing out while trying to download it.. I assume Apple servers are getting hammered right now by iOS updates..

Anyone know what this update is all about?

Edit:

The update went through.. Nothing new and nothing has changed. Must just be a minor bug fix and compatibility with iOS 8.1 kind of thing..

Oh, it's 7.0.1 if anyone cares..

Hopefully mine will hold on to the wifi connection now!

I've had some terrible problems with Apple TV since ios8 came out.

Fingers crossed that's all in the past.

I have had issues too, but I don't believe mine is due to Wifi drops. Mine has to do with iTunes. It's constantly dropping Home Share. I can stream stuff all day from Netflix, Hulu or HBO. But 10 minutes in to any thing I watch from my iTunes library it displays a Home Sharing is off error. I can turn off Home Share and Back on, and it solves the issue. Then randomly drops again during the movie. It makes it impossible for me to watch anything in my Library.

Did it solve the problems you both were having? Mine is hardwired and I'm not seeing any difference whatsoever..

It does seem a bit better but it's certainly not fixed. I get a drop out every twenty minutes now rather than ten.
