    Using Apple TV on TV with no HDMI input.

    Hi all,

    I have an old HD ready widescreen LCD TV with no HDMI input; it does however have a VGA input though. Is there a cable you recommend to go from HDMI to VGA? And what do I do about sound?

    Thanks in advance.

    Your best search engine for such a cable would be Amazon or Radio Shack. I've seen boxes that perform the same. Since HDMI of today carries sound those boxes have an audio/video splitter.

    Thanks. Yes, I've got my eye on those cables but just wanted to hear from someone's experience that they actually work? Is this cable sufficient? Do I not need an HDMI to VGA "convertor"?

    I've never tried it because for the price of cables and a conversion box I found a Samsung 23" HDMI computer screen for 25$ more.
