Apple has pulled Apple TV Software Update 6.0, which was released last Friday. The software update — which provided support for iTunes Radio, among other enhancements — caused some Apple TVs to fail during the update process, requiring an iTunes restore. According to reports, some Apple TVs have been “bricked” (rendered inoperable) due to the update, while others were unable to download any content. Apple TV 5.3 is currently shown as the “up to date” software once more. [via 9to5Mac]

The update failed twice but on the third try it worked.  No issues with my Apple TV since.  It’s our main entertainment hub, so I’m glad we had no issues.
