    I previously had my :apple:TV hooked up to my tv in my bedroom and all was well. However, my roommate bought a projector and i decided that the :apple:TV would be put to more use in the theatre room. One problem, as you know, the :apple:TV has only digital outputs (component video and HDMI). His projector has only analog inputs (S-Video, Composite, VGA).

    Is there an adaptor or cable (ie. Component to VGA) that will allow me to use the :apple:TV on the projector without too much image quality loss? I have seen a couple cables online but they all seem to not work as expected.

    Any suggestions?

    Actually, the AppleTV does have analog video out: component. If you search through this forum, you'll find many people who have tried (with varying levels of success) to use the AppleTV component outputs with TVs that only have composite inputs. I would suggest searching on "composite" or something like that.
