Silly question perhaps...

After screwing up the link between my AppleTV and iTunes with the ATV 3.0 OS, I have reset my ATV back to 2.4, installed 3.0.1 and downloaded the new 4.0.1 ATV Flash software.

The app on my mac says it’s 4.0.1 and creating a fresh USB stick and installing to ATV seems to work fine but when I check ‘Mainteance/about’ it says ATV Flash Version 4.0 and not 4.0.1.

Is this normal or have I done something wrong?

Yes, it seems the 4.0 version is being installed instead of 4.0.1. You’ll want to be sure to reformat the flash drive ( and remove any previous copies of aTV Flash currently on the computer.


I was installing the new software over the old version on my mac instead of deleting the old app and starting afresh. All up and running now.

I feel extremely silly and thoroughly ashamed of myself.

No need to beat yourself up. :wink: It’s an minor issue that will be addressed in the next version.
