Got a 2nd Gen Apple TV and was hoping to put the 1st Gen on the Bedroom TV. However, the TV only has inputs for S-Video and RCA, not Component or HDMI. Is there any hope for a converter cable? I've spent a little time googling around but haven't been able to find anything except for an expensive ($150) box to do the trick. I could probably get a new TV for that.

Thanks!

It's a 4:3 SDTV so it's not worth the expense or effort. Use the $150 towards a new HD TV (they're getting cheaper everyday)

EDIT of my edit: Whoops, misread my misread! You *ARE* talking about a first-gen. Carry on, here you go:

You'll have to hack yourself a multi-plug adapter (but only for setup,) but here you go:
