    They can be used with the AppleTV 1 hardware (the models with the internal hard drive) since these models have analog line out jacks, but would not be directly usable with the AppleTV 2 (the current tiny black model) as this model only supports HDMI and S/PDIF optical audio out; you would need a HDTV set, surround receiver, or a digital to analog converter to connect these speakers to the AppleTV 2.

  • I have a bit of an answer and a question at the same time....

    Although it wont connect directly to the Gen 2 Apple TV could you not use a USB to Optical Audio converter? I saw one for sale and I'm curious if this would fix the problem?

    You would hook the speakers up using USB into the converter and then use a optical audio from the converter to the Apple TV.

    Anyone else able to chime in on this or did I just complicate things more?!
