I am purchasing Apple's AppleTV this week and I have a HDTV which will work fine with the HDMI or the Component Video outs but I just wish they had a RCA Video out or S-Video out for a standard TV that I wish to hook another AppleTV to.
My question, is there some type of converter that can convert either HDMI video or Component Video into S-Video or RCA Video?

I know that most DVD players/Video recorders can output component and s-video through the scart, you could hock it up that way but this would result in a downgrade of picture quality.

He's asking for physical cables, not software :bone:

I've been doing some searching around, and I can't seem to find anything that allows for HDMI or component cables to be converted to S-video or composite. I'll keep digging around and post here if I find anything.

Ok, found something, though I don't know if it'll work.

You can get the HDMI to DVI cable, and then hook that up to the DVI to Video adapter.

Now, I'm not exactly sure if using two adapters will work, but it's the best I could find
