I have a new Apple TV and also have comcast cable...also a oder bose lifestyle system (I know its not great sound). When we connect Apple TV to the HDTV via HDMI I no longer have sound out of the lifstyle system since it is connect to the cable box...Can we connect Apple TV to the Cable Box? Or does the bose system need to be connect to the TV so it works with both?..thks

    The Apple TV also has an optical audio out. If the Bose has that kind of input you can connect to it and leave the cable box alone. If the Bose system does not have digital inputs, you can connect cable and ATV2 using HDMI to the TV and then connect the Bose to the TV audio out....

    Thanks to your post, I have connected my Comcat cable box to the Apple TV box via an optical digital out.

    How do I choose this from the Apple TV interface?
