I got my Apple Tv with a aTV Flash for a few months, been enjoying it ever since, before that I think the product was half way usable
The other day it suddenly stopped working… I would turn it on from sleep mode and I only got the yellow light blinking with no image on screen… Searched the web to find that it was most probable a video card problem… Today I took it to an authorized place here in Madrid where they fix Apple staff… They told me there´s nothing they could do about, that it would be cheaper to buy a new one, but that I could use mine on top of a paper pile just to hold the papers, very funny.
So I came back home and tried one last time to get it to work and it magically turned on again and is working fine again, don´t know for how long thou.
I´m thinking now the problem could have been heating problem.
So I would like to know how to turn the aTV off completely when not in use. I have tried with NitoTV´s Utilities, but it´s hard as hell to make it come back to life again. Could only do it by pressing Menu and volume down, so I get the restoring menu page.
Is there some other way that would just turn it off and then easily turn it back on?
Thank you very much for the help
