I'm not very technical

 

I've got an older tv that's not a flatscreen.

It is a JVC and it says 100hz Panoramic on the front of it, that's all I could find so far.

 

My question is, would apple tv work if I got a cable adapter which is HDMI to scart? And does this cable really exist? I've only read somewhere about it..

 

Also, I've got a standard macbook 13" (mac os x 10.6.8 Snow Leopard). Is this enough to get the software required for apple tv?

I'm not so interested in buying films etc, more having a media library to play music and browse the internet with.

 

Thanks for your answer !

Ah for the 1st question.  Google and see if they make such an adapter.  I don't think you will find one.  You need an HDMI on your TV 2nd Question-Yes it will work

Hi, I had a brief look through that link and, unless I'm mistaken, none of those will do what you want. You want to go from HDMI to Component or Composite (depending on how old your TV is). I'm not %100 but I think all of those boxes are one-way and none of them start with a HDMI input (some are for RGB to HDMI but that's not what you want). Here's something more along the lines of what you want:http://www.svideo.com/hdmi2svideo.html Hope that helps,AJC
