Recently the audio on my ATV 1 gen. dissapeared. At the time it was running with a USB harddrive as primary drive and working fine.
I restarted the ATV to find a continuous restart. I then followed the solution in the forum(regarding the plist delete with LAST FM) connecting to ATV via FTP. This has brought me my present position.
I have on startup the startup movie with sound and then black screen. After a while the default screensaver. But NO menu. The ATV reacts to the remote (stops the screensaver).
I can access the ATV via FTP.
Does anybody have an idea how to get back to normal, without a general reset???
