    Do we have to hook up the Apple TV to iTunes in the computer?

    Go to General, software update and then hit update now. Am currently updating and it's taking awhile.

    Wth! My update finished and now it wants me to hook up to my iTunes. How do I plug my Apple TV into my iTunes. It doesn't take the lightning cable

    Wow just found out I need a micro USB. When in the hell did Apple start using that? I would not have updated tonight if I would have known that. I can't watch anything now

    It's on my ATV 2, so it's been a while that they've had the micro USB port ;)

    I just bought the thing and the last thing I figured I would need is a micro USB. I mean what the hell uses micro anymore. It's all mini. This is bs

    I know it's most likely always been on there but how easy would it be just to use a regular cable that plugs into every other Apple device. Makes zero sense

    Crappy way to find out, that's for sure. Wonder why it needs to attach to your computer. ?
    A fee things still use micro USB, BT headsets, cameras, BT keyboards... But I had to dig around to find one when I was going to jailbreak my ATV.

    My BT head set might be micro. Let me check.
    And yeah, I don't understand why I DL OTA and then I have to plug it in


    Edit: nope I have all mini USB.

    you don't normally need to connect to iTunes for updates. something must have gone wrong with the update...

    Thanks all you just saved me. I was half way through the update while reading this. I stopped my update. Has everyone encountered this issue with needing to plug into iTunes?

    It fully downloaded and then said updating part 1 of 2. That finished and then updated part 2 of 2. It was almost done but I wasn't watching and then it showed a pic of a USB cord into the iTunes symbol.
    I tried unplugging the ATV and when I plugged it back the Apple symbol showed on the tv and then back to the USB to iTunes picture.

    Is there a way to reset?

    Snowtrooper, did you end up having to connect to iTunes? Or did it complete without? Thanks.

    I'm not technical. What is a micro USB? What does it look like. Might I have one in my camera or video camera?

    Do you mean that you can no longer watch Netflix, HBO go or any of the other Apple offerings...because you were unable to finish the update?
