Overnight, Apple released a minor software update for owners of its set-top media box, though it’s currently unknown whether the patch offers any new features. According to AppleInsider, Apple has yet to update its Apple TV software updates page, which documents revision changes as they come about.
Per reports that have come in, the 2.3.1 update appears to wreak havoc on installations of the Boxee cross-platform media center software, which adds unauthorized support for a wide range of multimedia formats, online video channels, and social networking features.
An update to Apple TV that arrived this past November also disabled Boxee installations but did so while delivering a number of widely received features at the same time, such as AirTunes streaming from Apple TV, third-party remote control compatibility, playlists, and music volume control.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available and if you’ve downloaded the update and noticed any major changes, let us know in the comments or forums.
