the problem using windows is despite people saying that you can put the aptv2 into dfu mode holding down the down and menu buttons then the menu and play buttons I never managed to get it to go into dfu mode only into recovery mode googling it seems windows users have this issue ?
so found this way to do it...connect your appletv using only the microusb cable and not the mains power cord...
run the new version of redsn0w and select the standard restore ipsw
when the options come up select the last one "Just enter pawned DFU mode right now"
wait for the count down timer on step 2 to reach 7 seconds then hold the menu and play button until step 2 finishes at 0 then release buttons.
you should get a successfully in dfu mode after it had been pwned if not click back and try again.. until it succeds..
go to itunes and shift restore to your custom firmware..

Was about to edit that because there is no linking to custom firmware?

anyone have problem getting their ATV into DFU with pwnagetool after the initial jailbreak?
I wanted to start fresh, tried everything and it wouldn't go into DFU again to rejailbreak. Even after a restore to stock IPSW through iTunes it wouldn't work... the only way I was able to get DFU again was to restore through the ATV itself and then use pwnagetool to get DFU and rejailbreak.
^^ and while restoring through ATV worked last time, this time it doesn't seem to be working.
edit2: after failing to get DFU after restore through the ATV itself, I did a 'reset all settings' and it worked the next time... weird.

What Mac you got? Could it not be keeping up with the encoding that Plex is doing?
