Apple TV: good luck plugging it in!

by garth on March 31, 2007

If only I'd been following The Register: my shiny new Apple TV lacks any outputs compatible with older televisions. It outputs HDMI or component video; my Grundig takes RGB or composite over SCART.

If Apple TV had an S-Video port, I'd be fine. It doesn't. I'm not.  

For only an extra AUD$150-250 depending on model, I can buy a converter and have it shipped from the UK. Or, I can spend AUD$2,200 on an A/V receiver that can do the trick. Or, I can spend thousands replacing my fantastic looking cathode-ray tube TV with an expensive flat panel that still won't look as good for standard definition television.

Or, I could just return the bastard.
