    Question Solution for old TV
    Hi

    I'm looking for a solution to connect my AppleTV to my old PAL TV without HDMI or component but only S-Video and AV in.
    Every place i search, people got a lot of theories of how to pull it off, but no-one really comes with a hands-on solution with "THIS is what you need for it".
    Several converters are mentioned which resulted in me buying this, which only came out with a black screen.

    So... if you have made your AppleTV work with and old(er) TV, please let me know which cables, converters or so you have used...

    Regards

    Sorry my friend but there is no way to do it. I have tryed everything. The only way is to get a new tvset.

    Cool
    Actually i found the solution.
    I bought this converter Component (YUV) to RGB/VGA Converter and it worked perfect.
    All it needed was a scart-cable that was fully connected (or else it was black/white).

    So this is a solution, maybe there are other converters, but this worked for me
