    Does the :apple: TV work with standard def TVs? Does anyone have an :apple: TV and a SD TV that could try this out? Thanks.

    If your tv has component input (separate red, blue, and green plugs for video), then you can use the Apple TV - can't say I'd recommend it though as you'd probably have to letterbox everything. That is why they "require" widescreen...

    Oh crap! My DVD player has component out. Is there some sort of converter I could get?

    Is that a yes? (your tv has component)

    There are convertors but from what I have seen they are expensive. (Over $170)

    component out on the DVD player won't help, the TV needs to accept component in.

    As far as it working on SD with component, I will find out tonight. I won't get access to my HD TV for a few more weeks (moving) so until then I need to use the TV at the corp apartment. In about another 2 hours I will be trying it. I will post an update regardless.

    Nice, just found a an article on TUAW that pretty much answers my question.

    I guess Google really is my friend. :rolleyes:
