    I dont know how many pins, but I bought mine from Best Buy and it works fine. It cost 19.99, but I have had no issues with it. Its a Blackberry micro USB for a cell phone. Best Buy Model and SKU below.

    Model: 34918BBR | SKU: 9979832

    You can also use the charging cable from the newer Garmin GPS and the Harmony remotes. I just grab the one from my Harmony 700 and its fine.

    Some Harmony remotes (Harmony One is what I have) use mini-usb, but Apple TV needs micro-usb.

    Samsung Focus, Nexus One, BlackBerry Torch and Kindle all use micro USBs that appear to work. Tons more devices I'm sure, but I had those around and they work.

    I too asked the number of pin question and got little help, but every micro-usb cabled I've tried has worked.

    Thanks 4 all the help. I bought a micro USB cable at best buy for 19.99. It doesn't say how many pins it has but I plugged it in and is compatible with my atv.
