If you own a second generation Apple TV, look out for an update the next time you turn it on. Released earlier today, it takes the Apple TV iOS to 4.2.2. Don’t expect any new features or functionality though, it appears to be more of a bug fix related update.

According to Apple’s support website 4.2.2 includes:

Audio: Addresses an issue in which audio is not output when playing some video content.

Video playback: Addresses an issue in which video is not displayed when playing some content.

Audio output setting: Adds an audio output setting for switching to 16-bit audio for compatibility with some TVs and AV receivers.

Live FF/RW improvements: Improves the performance of fast-forwarding and rewinding live events.

Movie description: Addresses an issue in which the description information is not displayed for some movies.

YouTube video order: Addresses an issue in which YouTube subscription videos were not ordered by date.
