    Hi Guys,

    I've downloaded the ATV 4 tvOS 9.2 beta 2 and I want to try it out.

    Is there a way of installing it without loosing everything that's currently installed on it?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes. You can download and install the configuration file (using the Apple Configurator 2 app) and then you can update OTA.

    If you're installing the beta Restore Image, don't forget to register your UDID -- seems some users neglected to do this and have experienced issues. Installing the certificate and applying the OTA update seems to be fine-for-all though. Step-by-step instructions for both image-restore and certificate installs can be found here:
