    This is probably blatantly obvious to many of you, which is why I am asking here. Will it be possible to hook the new ATV to a tv via a component connection? I'm guessing no unless I have some kind of conversion box.

    Thanks.

    ZZ Bottom, I share your confusion.

    I have a relatively modern (but still old) CRT TV. It is an expensive Loewe TV, which has a great picture and looks stunning. I want to keep it.

    I would love to make the new Apple TV work for me, but my TV doesn't have a HDMI socket. I have an Apple ipod to Composite cable that I can use to stream video and music off my iPhone to my TV. It works pretty well but has none of the slickness of the Apple TV. Why is it not possible to do something similar with the Apple TV without a really expensive converter (hundreds of pounds)?

    That article talks about encrypted stuff, so meaning if you rent anything from iTunes, it won't work, but if you are streaming your files, it will from what I understand.

    what article are you talking about? the one about the HDMI to composite, if it is it says more than that, it says, it does not work, period, for anything, it cannot convert digital HDMI to any thing analog.
