    Hello,
    I would like to purchase Apple TV but have some questions. I have a Yahmaha receiver that has HDMI and YpBpr Inputs. My Plasma HDTV does not have HDMI inputs. Do you guys know of the best way to convert the AppleTV's HDMI output to YpBpr? I live in the US.

    Thanks

    You can connect your tv/projector to Yamaha reciever as output and connect appletv/roku/blu ray player/other as input. using your yamaha remote, choose source which is appletv/roku/blu ray player/other and enjoy the content.

    There will be plenty of information available online or at Yamaha documentation to help you to solve your problem.

    Its my understanding that if on the Receiver I have a HDMI input, I must use the HDMI output in order to use that device. And with the TV not having an HDMI input, I cant use the HDMI Device (appletv)

    You'll need a fairly expensive HDMI to Component converter. Many new receivers do the opposite (Component to HDMI for example), but I'm not aware of any that go from Digital to Analog (kind of goes against the entire industry's plans).

    Something like this...

    Granted now you have spent as much for the converter as you probably will for the AppleTV....

    Move this one to a secondary location and get a new one to pair with the receiver and Apple TV.

    Also you could use optical audio from the AppleTV to the TV or receiver or TV to receiver.

    I used this with my Samsung R74 tv. The HDMI interface on that doesn't support HDCP so the Apple TV mk3 won't sink up.

    Just need to make sure that switch this on first before the AppleTV and is pretty cheap. No reason why this wouldn't work on the HDMI out of the receiver.

    Simply HDMI into this and then component out into the TV.
