Will Apple TV work on a Sony flat screen that is pre-HD?

    What do you mean by "pre-HD"?

    The apple TV can only connect directly to TVs that have an HDMI input.
    With that said, you could purchase an AV receiver with HDMI inputs that has a monitor or other video output that can down convert from digital to analog signals and connects to your "pre-HD" TV. However, this is an added expense. You may as well just join the digital age and purchase a digital TV with HDMI inputs.

  • From the Apple TV Tech Spec "Compatible with high-definition TVs with HDMI and capable of 1080p or 720p at 60/50Hz". Sorry to say it doesn't sound like it.

  • You might be able purchase a hdmi to rca cable and use that.
    But by using that cable you wont experience HD movies/TV shows.
