    you can get a micro USB cable just about anywhere. BestBuy, OfficeDepot, WalMart etc.  Many popular smart phones use them too.  Blackberry I know does. Some Droids.  I have a B&N nook that uses one.

    I tried updating the firmware on the ATV2 and ended up with the screen to plug the USB into my mac.  I tried multiple times with both a Macbook Pro and a new 27" iMac.  I tried it through iTunes using an Amazon micro USB cable and also the Kindle micro USB cable.   I also tried it both ways with and without the power cable attached to the ATV2.   I got an error each time saying the ATV2 was not eligible for update and a blinking light.


    This is finally what worked for mine.


    I went into Windows XP with Vmware Fusion and installed a brand new copy of iTunes.  I plugged the ATV2 with just the micro USB cable and let iTunes update the firmware.  It worked.
