Apple TV on SDTV in Black and White

If you have a standard definition TV with a composite input, you CAN use the Apple TV, but only in black and white. Just simply connect a cable from the green (luma) component output to your yellow composite input and select 480i as the resolution.I mention this only for those folks (like me) who are waiting to receive their big beautiful flat-screen TV, but can’t wait to try out their new Apple TV. Just recognize that this is not a long term solution – who wants to see their iPhoto collection in black and white?

Yes, it’s GeekBrief TV, in glorious Greyscale!

    You can have it in color with a simple hack by Mauricio Pastrana. Check it out on the web. It works perfectly even on old, SD TVs…
