Apple TV playing up

10-11  Source: Network gathering  Views:0 

My Apple TV has started to mess up starting today, it's lost all of the channels apart from the settings and the computers channels, I HAVE TRIED the plug into iTunes method and it didn't work, I then unplugged it from the way and the Television and then plugged it back in after 20 minutes, it let me sign into iTunes and iCloud and then got all of it's channels back, but after watching some videos on YouTube the search feature stopped working, then the whole app collapsed so I put it to sleep but when I woke it back up again all of the channels had disappeared AGAIN.
I have used the restore function on the Apple TV, and the reset feature.
I have tried the iTunes restore method.
My time zone is: London (Where I live)
My Regional Format is: United Kingdom, where it should be.
I have disconnected from the network and connected again.
I CANNOT: Restart the router it is connected to or join any other internet access points as I live in shared accommodation and there is no access to the router, or any other access points.
I do not know what else I can do apart from take it into an iStore, but this is really starting to annoy me as I expect the product to work flawlessly as it has been doing before. Please help me get this back online as it is very annoying to say the least and I would like it if the products I have spent so much money on would work as intended.
You might try restarting the Apple TV by removing ALL the cables for 30 seconds.
Also try restarting the router. (Also try removing it’s power cord for at least 30 seconds)
If the problem persists, try a restore, you may want to try the previous procedures several times before doing this.
If restoring from the Apple TV doesn't help, try restoring from iTunes using a USB cable.
In addition to trying the above, it may also be that your network router is not allowing access to the timeserver, check that your router allows access over port 123.
