Please could anyone tell if they are have problems with that update.

My iMac went down yesterday afternoon and now it won’t boot.

I’m not sure if it downloaded/installed the iTunes update automatically and then crashed.

I came back to my Mac to discover a blue screen and it was unresponsive.

I did install Onyx in the morning.  So, I not sure if that caused it.

After visiting The Genius Bar, Mac was replaced immediately. (17 months old as well). So, nothing to do with iTunes update.

After downloading iTunes 8.1.1, the remote app on my iPod touch isn’t working and I can’t pair it up as it’s not showing under devices.  Another thing I noticed was that there is no option to select multiple speakers.

I did notice that clicking Help - About iTunes in 8.1.1. will crash it.  All you can do then is kill it with Task Manager.

After downloading 8.1.1 my itunes speed is severely decreased. It took me 20 minutes to complete a download of a free song from the store. Also, the clips in the store no longer play without continued interruption of rebuffering stream. None of this happened with the old version. Can I go back to the old version? Is there a way to fix this?
