Did you try reading the prompt instead of blindly clicking "Yes?" That would have been faster and easier than registering and posting on this forum.

Hey bro if it says apple tv2, and you have an ipodtouch3g, I'm pretty sure you can't read, so don't try jailbreaking.

I have the exact same problem except on my AppleTV. In my case, I blindly click "NO" instead of reading the question then it wants me to press the power and home buttons on my iPod. I don't have an iPod, it's an AppleTV. WTF!?!!

There's something wrong, alright. It's a PEBKAC issue.

They READ prompts instead of just clicking "Yes." Have you not figured this out? Nevermind, some people aren't learners, it's ok.
