    Hello everyone. I'm new to the whole AppleTV thing but at $99 I am really wanting to give it a shot. I have an older TV that doesn't have an HDMI port but it does have an S-Video port. Is there a somewhat affordable cable out there that I could use? I did a quick forum search and a quick Google search but had no luck. Thanks!

    Cable no, convertor box yes, however thay are expensive and most don't support HDCP so are unable to convert protected content. By the time you've found a convertor that works with protected content and given the fact that converting a Hi-Def HDMI signal to a Std-Def S-Video signal will result in a massive loss of quality then it will probably be chaper and easier to buy a new telly with a HDMI connector.
