All worked fine for me until my ATV2 informed me that a software/firmware update was available for my unit. Performed the 2 step update, unit rebooted, then I was presented with the iTunes / USB cable image. Could not get any further until I did a complete restore followed by Seas0nPass process. Any way of disabling check for updates. Thank you

I tried this and got to the part were iTunes restores and iTunes gave me a error 3194 I think it was saying it could not restore any suggestions?

I bought an Apple TV 2nd gen on ebay for 100 dollars, but according to the seller, the device had a "hardware issue" and didn't work. When it arrived, the first thing I did was to crack it open and look for a burned resistor or some kind of damage in the circuit, but there wasn't any. Since I couldn't find anything, I realized maybe the problem was in the software. I then tried to restore the firmware to remove any modifications made by the previous owner and I kept getting the same error code as you. There is a file in your computer located in the following directory: C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc File name: hosts Make 2 copies of the file and place them on your desktop before you attempt this method... Modify one of them with Notepad and remove the last line(s), which are separated from the rest (the line(s) should say something like ""). Save the changes and replace the original file with the one modified (after you are done, you can restore it with the other copy). You can't edit the file directly in that directory, windows won't let you. Once you do this, try restoring the firmware again and this time you shouldn't get the error. I got my Apple TV to turn on and then I jailbroke it with Seas0nPass. I never post in this kind of sites, let alone to help other people. But I spent about 6 hours struggling with that same problem. Hopefully it will help you if your Apple TV is still not working, or anyone who has the same problem and hasn't been able to fix it.
