Will this work with an ?TV?

http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Insignia...www.google.com

It says there is one component input

Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 1 Component x 1 Composite x 1 Audio (RCA) x 1 RF x 1

I get very confused with TVs and inputs and the like. I know the ?TV doesnt support composite, but i thought it needed 3 ports for component, yet that TV only has 1 component port. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

why wouldnt it work? i thought all it needed was component?

I think it means one set of component ports. But...
Apple TV works with widescreen, enhanced-definition or high-definition TVs capable of 1080i, 720p, 576p, or 480p resolutions, including popular models from these manufacturers.
So I think it's not supported, as it's standard-def.

i just called up apple, and they said so long as it has the component (green blue red) on it, it will work.....just might be stretched imaged and so forth, but that it will display......
