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

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
