Users also report that overall wireless throughput for the Apple TV has been enhanced as a result of this update.

Finally, a users are reporting that scrolling through menus and navigation through other interface elements is faster after the update.

In order to apply this update, go to the main menu on your Apple TV and choose the Settings menu with the Apple Remote. Choose "Update Software."
