    Default Beta on AppleTV

    Anyone else here running the beta on their AppleTV?

    The new bluetooth auto set-up was freakin' cool...

    Observations: You can enter multiple AppleIDs and switch between them via menu... iTunes Radio is there, but doesn't connect...

    Good to know. I have tried it yet on mine because I'd have to have time to get to it when the kids aren't using them.

    My AppleTV is jailbroken and I dont wanna break that, but I may be buying a 3rd gen soon. Are those the only 2 new features?

    There may be more - I just noted a couple things I've noticed thus far... the bluetooth set-up is a new feature to this latest beta...

    Not sure what you mean by "iTunes Radio is there, but doesn’t connect..."... it seems to work fine for me... I see all of my personal radio stations that I can listen to on my phone - they are there on my AppleTV, as well...

    On AppleTV, if I hit the radio link, it asks for my AppleID... then the daisy spins... and I get an error message to try again later....

    Wow... works great for me... as I said, I see and can play any of my custom radio stations that I created earlier on my iPhone... as well as playing the "canned" stations and create new ones.

    This is interesting... I’d hope others have/will try this so we can see what’s going on... you mentioned switching between different Apple IDs... I only have one, so that may be a piece of the issue...

    I've only got the one AppleID myself... Radio works fine on the iPhone & iPad for me...

    Add: Rebooted the AppleTV - low & behold... iTunes Radio works... imagine that.

    They added the feature for multiple Apple ID's a while back. I think it was an update
    late last year or early this year.
