    I'm considering an Apple TV 2, but my tv is an early LCD that doesn't have HDCP. I'm supposing that there's no way to use the Apple TV 2 with it? Would Netflix work? Or nothing?
    Thanks for any insight.

    if the TV says it...

    ... does not support HDCP, I would not buy the ATV2. My nine year old Sony KV36XBR800 CRT did support HDCP and 720P, so I gave it a shot. It has a DVI and not an HDMI port, so I bought an HDMI Switch and now the ATV2 and my TV are playing nice with 720P.

    I wish I had better news for you...

    Thanks

    Thank you for the reply, I thought so. My wife bought me one for Xmas, I guess I'll have to return it :(
    Well, Apple store credit is not such a bad thing!!!
