  1. macrumors regular

    Mar 22, 2009

    I am using ATV with HDMI cable and without any problem, but yesterday I take it to another house and there TV don't have HDMI so I use the normal cable to connect from ATV to the TV (red,white and yellow cable) but the image on the TV is only in Black & White I try in several ways with the same result.

    I appreciate any help on this matter

    Red, White and Yellow connectors are:-

    Red = Right audio signal
    White = Left audio signal
    Yellow = Composite Video

    The AppleTV uses Red, Green, Blue connectors which are COMPONENT video connectors.

    As you have found out Composite video is not the same as Component video.
