I experienced a strange event today that I would like to share. I have 2 JB ATV2 units (5.0.2 UNtethered) AND 1 ATV3 unit with latest Apple firmware. After closing 1channel and the XBMC program on ATV2 unit, I noticed the complete lack of the TV Shows tile on the standard Apple splash screen. All the other tiles moved up one position, so now I have PLEX in the right corner and SETTINGs still on the right top corner. I went to my other, not-used-today, and low and below, the TV Shows tile (which previews all the iTunes alvailable shows) was ALSO gone from the splash startup.
Now, I went to my standard ATV3 unit and guess what…the TV Shows tile was in it’s normal place on the top row. Color me paranoid, but I think Apple has reached into my system to disable, hopefully only temporarily for now, the TV Shows option icon. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon today…I noticed it around 3:00 pm EST.
