According to “AppleInsider” (, a software fix is said to be in the works for users who have experienced screen flickering issues after updating to the latest firmware for the Apple TV set top box.

The article says an Apple support representative has confirmed that Apple is aware of the issues caused by the latest update to the Apple TV (version 4.2). Apple is reportedly working on a fix that will address the screen flickering problems for a small number of users. No timeframe was given for when the fix might be released.

Last week, “AppleInsider” first reported on the screen flickering problems caused by the 4.2 update for Apple TV. Users have experienced flickers and screen flashes with direct HDMI video connections, as well as with an HDMI to DVI video adapter. The problems did not exist before Apple released the Apple TV 4.2 update last Wednesday.
