    Apple TV Video Connector

    Hello,

    Has anyone purchased an Apple TV and successfully connected it to a RCA input? We need to link our Apple TV to a projector but it only has a RCA connection. I have purchased several HDMI to RCA but none have worked.

    Thanks.

    Ryan

    What connectors does the projector have other than RCA ( not DVI or anything like that ) ?

    Not related to this but I purchased a HDMI to DVI-D cable when I had a 2008 mac pro and connected my mac pro to my HD TV and that cable worked fine, just a thought.

    RCA, as in composite (red, yellow, white) or component (green, blue, red)?

    The Kanex is a good solution, but obviously this is only useful with a projector with multiple VGA inputs (not that unusual) or with a VGA switcher. Trying to get it to work over composite sounds like a nightmare.

    Hello,

    Thank you so much for all your replies. Apple TV has been a complete nightmare so we have decided to use AirServer (20 licenses for just under £51) You can download a 7 day trial from AirServer - The game console for Mac/PC has arrived it seems to work for us just waiting on our finance depart to purchase the licenses now.
