    It doesn't need a cable m8, if you have the iTunes logo showing, then it's been jailbroken but either not successfully or tethered and then unplugged. You need to re-jailbreak it or plug it into iTunes and do a full restore.
    Edit, you will need a Micro USB to re-jailbreak, and possibly Restore.

    I've never tried to jailbreak mate. Just happened all of a sudden. Crash maybe? Yeah I know I need a micro USB but its not something I carry around.

    Have you tried holding the home & down arrow together for 10+ seconds to reset?

    If it is brand new, can it when it is an appletv2? Then I'd take it back as it may be trouble. And if you bought it secondhand I'd do the same. I've had Appletvs since they've been released never had to connect it to anything other than TV and power and wifi.
