It seems as though the recent second iteration of the Apple TV has not landed without its own handful of glitches. According to AppleInsider users are complaining of streaming HD rentals not loading, and “HDMI handshakes” from aTV to television not completing.
The complaints say that HD rentals give an estimated load time of hundreds or even thousands of minutes, even when streamed across ample bandwidth.
Others are complaining that the compatibility between the AppleTV and a number of HD televisions is exceedingly spotty, notably with Sony and Philips sets. The users are saying they get frequent “HDMI handshakes” between the two devices, and when the picture returns, it’s with altered colors.
