The App Store is tonight listing an update to Apple Configurator, everyone's favorite iOS deployment tool. Today's update, 1.4.2, "improves configuration and MDM enrollment of Apple TV." The update to the free app is in the Mac App Store.

What? You didn't know that you can manage Apple TVs? Those little devices run iOS just like your trusted iPhones and iPads. And they accept many of the same configuration profile keys as their big brothers do.

To manage an Apple TV, you will need a micro USB cable. (Maybe you have one to charge that Android phone you never use.)

Launch Apple Configurator, then connect your Apple TV via USB. If you have a 2nd Generation Apple TV, USB is the only cable you need. If you have a 3rd Generation Apple TV (the one that does 1080p) you will need the power cable as well. Configurator will launch the "Apple TV Assistant."

(Now that said, I tried it and Configurator didn't see my Apple TV. Maybe it will work tomorrow?)

this is exactly what we are currently running into...needless to say, I chuckled when I read the parenthesis.
