You have the correct steps. Try 6 seconds instead of 7
Connect your Apple TV to the power outlet and to your computer via a Micro-USB cable.

Let go of both buttons then press and hold the Menu and Play buttons together for another six seconds, then release.

Thanks for your answer lordofdaflies
I continue stuck.
I tried everything, even i cannot see which version of firmware I have...
IŽll post my progress... if I find a solution to put on dfu mode
I was having the same problem. I was using the old apple remote. Once I changed to the new aluminum remote, everything worked. I guess I was the DAU!
+1. You've got to use the remote it came with. I also got stuck trying with an old plastic remote to the same failure.

The other method did not work for me either.
I find this easier anyway to be honest.
