    I am thinking about getting a Apple TV and I know ages ago there was a hack using the component green output into a composite in - link.

    I don't have component or HDMI...yet.

    Is this still valid today?

    I have no means to test it - there is the hardware and a software hack

    I recall a thread awhile back that said the trick using a HMDI-DVI adapter still works under Apple TV 3.0. No software modification necessary. I'm still using Apple TV 2.x and using this trick. I did a search but couldn't find the thread for 3.0.

    Yes, you do.
    You might want to check patchstick.ca solution which is identical.
    However that solutions offers a better price and more functions.
