    So I have a pretty old TV without a HDMI port, can I hook up a Apple TV to my TV somehow? Is there like any A/V to HDMI adapters?

    The Google link you provided is component-to-HDMI as in, it would output in HDMI. And the OP has an Apple TV 2 which only has HDMI, no component.

    OP, maybe try something like this? The first review on the page deals with an AppleTV as the source.

    Wow, I totally read that wrong. For some reason i read "old apple tv" and didn't read the topic.

    You want an HDFury2 then to do this if your tv has YPbPr inputs. If it only has composite (the yellow rca jack) you'll need one of these as well. I don't think there are any HDMI to composite adapters that strip HDCP.

    I have that exact product you mentioned from Amazon and it works great with my old CRT with the Apple TV2. It didn't show colors correctly using the S video output but composite works great. There is some very slight clipping on the left and right edges but not very noticeable.
