I cancelled my AppleTV order awaiting an answer to this question which couldn't be answered by the Apple tech rep a few weeks ago. Perhaps some one of you can answer it now that you've had some experience with the box. Can I use a combination of HDMI cable and Component Audio cable to hook up an AppleTV? I have no more Component Video jacks available on my TV, but there is an unused HDMI jack. I want the sound to go through my surround system for whatever enhanced sound I can get, albeit not 5.1. Therefore, I'm thinking of using the HDMI for video only (turning the volume control down low on the TV) and concurrently receiving sound by plugging into the unused VCR jack on the Receiver with Component Audio cable. Will this work?
