Apple tv podcasts not updating

The device has no integrated controls and can only be controlled externally, either by an Apple Remote control device (with which it is sold) using its infrared/bluetooth capability, by the Apple TV Remote app (downloadable from App Store) on i OS devices, such as the i Phone, i Pod Touch, i Pad, and Apple Watch, using its Wi-Fi capability, or by some third-party infrared remotes.

To update it wirelessly, connect it to a power source, and then tap "Settings | General | Software Update | Download and Install | Install." To update it via i Tunes, connect the i Phone to your computer using its USB cable, launch i Tunes on the computer, and then select the i Phone on the main horizontal menu in i Tunes.

Click the "Summary" tab, click "Check for Update," and then click "Download and Update." The release of i OS 7 introduced an issue that causes podcasts to stop syncing on some devices, including some i Phones.

You can download the most recent version of i Tunes directly from Apple's website (link in Resources).

Once you're running the most recent version of i Tunes, verify that you are attempting to sync podcasts correctly in i Tunes.

Sync the i Phone to i Tunes as normal to make sure you've backed up the contents of your i Phone, and then click the "Podcasts" tab in i Tunes.

Place a check mark in the Sync Podcasts check box, tap the "Settings" icon on your i Phone, tap "Podcasts," and then verify that Sync Subscriptions is enabled.

If you're running i OS 7 on your i Phone, you may be able to fix podcast synchronization problems by resetting your podcast subscription settings in i Tunes.

Make sure you're running the latest version of i Tunes on your computer, and then connect your i Phone to it.

The device was now housed in a smaller, all-black case, one-quarter the size of the original.

The new model did away with an internal hard drive and had 8 GB internal flash storage, enough local storage for buffering purposes; all media was now streamed, instead of synced.

In July 2011, Apple discontinued the Front Row interface for Mac users, leaving subsequent Apple TVs as the only officially-supported 10-foot user interface from Apple.
