    ATV connected to the V. Aux HDMI input on my new Denon receiver. Problem starts now: Video out is an RCA monitor out from receiver to the "old" Mitsubishi big screen - no HDMI on this dinosaur of a TV. So that means I can't set it up or use it.

    Will purchase an up to date TV soon.

    For now, is there a way to convert the HDMI out of the receiver to go into the TV for viewing while still transmitting the audio thru the receiver? I so, cost and where to buy?

    No HDMI input on TV

    I have similar issue with my Samsung plasma - no HDMI input.
    Can I use HDMI cable (out from ATV) with RCA & DVI (in to plasma TV)?
    Obviously picture & sound would be sub standard as it would produce analogue audio and lower picture resolution but could be a cheap stop gap until I can upgrade TV.
    I don't know if this will work - CAN ANYONE COMMENT ????

    Is the DVI port HDCP?
    If so then yes, if not then most likely no

    Apple TV

    I purchased Apple TV (2nd Gen) for Xmas and have now successfully installed it using HDMI to DVI input on my old plasma TV (TV has DVI but no HDMI) for video and the Optical Digital output for audio to my Optical audio input on my amplifier.

    All works really well with no delay between audio and video signals. Only issue is I need to obviously have both TV and Amp turned on to use.
