    I had my old Apple TV hooked to my TV via HDMI but also had the red/white audio outputs going to my receiver so that I could listen to music and not have to have the TV on.

    Are there converters out there? How are you guys running your audio to receivers?

    The link I posted is basically the same as this one--but this one is cheaper (from newagemac). You don't need to spend $80. :)

    (LOL--I see you already found it--good show)

    Not really a different format. Most audio now is digital and the optical output on the ATV is digital--so it needs to stay digital--or be converted to analog. So if you have an older receiver that can't handle digital signals, the signal needs to be converted to analog).

    Opps--sorry--yeah I left out the obvious--hdmi is the ultimate solution in that it sends both digital video and digital audio within the same cable.
