    I'm trying to update my appletv software but apparently it's
    going to take 10 hrs? Why so long? I need to do this so I can 'see' the mirror function under AirPlay on iPad 2 ios5. I think?

    Mine told me 10 hours as well but after about 40 minutes I released it had hung.
    I killed the update, unpowered the AppleTV, plugged it back it and started the update again and it only took maybe 15-20 minutes.
