    How can you tell an Apple TV 2 or 3 apart physically? Also, how can you tell them apart in iTunes? Thanks in advance.

    to tell them apart in iTunes, on the aTV, go to settings->general->name.

    you can assign them a name, and that will show up in iTunes.
    if you select "Kitchen" from the list, the name will actually be "Kitchen Apple TV", if you do custom it only does what you type.
