ATV signal scrambled
I'm using the ATV on an old HDTV that only has component cable ports. Every so often the video signal gets scrambled and sometimes it doesn't get any signal at all.
I tried another ATV on the same TV and got the same problem. I've also tried different component cables and that didn't help either. I didn't run out and get monster cables or something like that because I think that's a bunch of BS (at least in the audio world).
So could this be a cable issue? Also would having a weak wireless signal cause this? Although I don't know why since it's play things directly off the drive.

I'm sure this is far too late for the original poster, but in case somebody else with the same problem stumbles upon this thread (as I did earlier today), I thought I'd post my solution.
I had the same problem, and it was due to the fact that the ATV was set to the (much higher) resolution of the tv in my family room, so when I moved it down to my old CRT tv in the basement, my CRT tv didn't know how to interpret the signal.
Holding + and menu on the ATV remote will force the ATV to test all the possible resolutions, and if it finds one your tv can read, you are set.
