Apple has released Apple TV 2.2 which brings two new features, “Genius” and HD TV shows to the device. The update also addresses security flaws and fixes two separate issues where a maliciously crafted movie file could lead to either an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.
Genius feature instantly creates a playlist of other songs from your library “that go great together.” You will also notice a new “HD” option located in the TV purchases on the iTunes Store.
The Apple TV 2.2 update is available directly to the Apple TV and won’t appear in your computer’s Software Update application, or in the Apple Downloads web site.
The update brings improvements to the handling of atom length fields in movie codes and bounds checking of STSZ atoms. It also fixes an issue where openly a malicious PICT image may cause applications to quit unexpectedly.
Your Apple TV will update based on your automatic update settings or you can perform manual software update by navigating to Settings>General>About>Update Software.
