    It says there is one component input

    Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 1 • Component x 1 • Composite x 1 • Audio (RCA) x 1 • RF x 1

    I get very confused with TVs and inputs and the like. I know the ?TV doesnt support composite, but i thought it needed 3 ports for component, yet that TV only has 1 component port. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    question is why would you ? but i would doubt that would work IMO

    Tube Warranty 90 Days
    Overall Warranty 90 Days

    you are kidding on the warranty right?

    why would i? because I have 700gb of music photo and videos on my laptop w/ external HD, that id like to watch in the living room (at college), instead of on my 15inch screen in my room

    why wouldnt it work? i thought all it needed was component?

    I think it means one set of component ports. But...
    Apple TV works with widescreen, enhanced-definition or high-definition TVs capable of 1080i, 720p, 576p, or 480p resolutions, including popular models from these manufacturers.​
    So I think it's not supported, as it's standard-def.

    i just called up apple, and they said so long as it has the component (green blue red) on it, it will work.....just might be stretched imaged and so forth, but that it will display......
