I have an older HDTV that can output 480ip/720p/1080i via Component and DVI(HDCP capable). I can confirm this wavy/scanline issue with the :apple:TV on my HDTV which does not happen if I hookup my MacMini, PS3 and set it to 720p.

I hooked up my :apple:TV to my computer monitor that has HDMI input and it works fine.

I'm guessing it might have to do with signal, clock timings. Could be fixed it in next update.

I'm not so uber excited with :apple:TV, partly because my HDTV was bought in 2003 just before HDMI became a standard. On top of that there's the optical to analog audio conversion I had to buy.

I'm having the same problem. Solutions? Stick something between the apple tv and my tv?
