Is this what your looking for? http://www.kanexlive.com/atvpro.
I think it might be cheaper to purchase through RM I'm not sure. Hope that helps
In one of the schools I am currently supporting they have bought an Apple TV to test, I'm currently setting it up but have immediately realised that there is no sound because the Apple TV has a HDMI output only and connects straight to a projector, now this projector has no built in speakers OR any sound port outputs. There is an optical out port on the back of the apple TV but i'm struggling to find any adapters.
Anyone had this issue and found a good solution?

Yes, but in a few years time Apple will have changed their equipment 15 times in the interim. Projectors will have VGA for a while yet.
We use a number of appleTV's in our school and have hit upon the same issues.
We take the optical out of the apple tv and put it through and optical to rca converter (about 30 quid) and feed this to an amplifier that is in the room.
Works well for us
Check Ebay for optical to RCA converters ... I bought mine from there ... from memory about £15.00 each
You know you can get optical audio to mini jack converters for about £5, we got from free with some of those tiny Asus computers (eeebox i think).
If you did want those ones that I linked you too they are cheaper on RM's site. If you have an account with them and wanted to bulk buy you may get the price down ?!?!?!

You could always try AirServer as an alternative - don't need to change sources etc on projector, and runs really well in my schools: AirServer - The game console for Mac/PC has arrived
