    Hello Everyone,

    I am a first time apple TV user. I have a sony 27" trinitron TV (KV27FS100). I am using the component output on the apple tv to connect it to my TV. The problem is I can only see pink squares uniformly distributed on my TV.

    I am sure my component input to the TV is working as I use it for my DVD player. Anyone familiar with this problem?

    Oh and also, I went to the apple store and got it checked and the component outputs worked fine on their TV's, so that rules out the fact that something could be wrong with the component output on my apple TV.

    Any help is appreciated!!!

    It might not support progressive scan. If you have the :apple:tv set to 480p, try 480i.

    I had a 36" Trinitron WEGA, with component inputs and widescreen support, but no progressive scan.
