Question: Old pioneer + Apple TV via HDMI not working

Hi! I am trying to set up a Pioneer PDP 4270HD with apple TV 4K drectly via HDMI port from Pioneer to Apple TV and I get absolutely nothing. I followed the instructions in the original Pioneer manual, chose the input (5), pressed home menu, Option, HDMI Input, chose Video and tried each video signal choice under HDMI input and none worked, including auto. I then tried moving the HDMI cable to the other port (input 6) and did everything again - but again, I get absolutely nothing - no picture/no sound. It seems as if it should be so simple - but its not, for some reason. I checked all of the threads, but their circumstances were different as I am going directly from the TV to the Apple TV without any additional equipment. I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide in trying to figure this out.

Answer:
Answer:

You are holding down the buttons on the Apple TV remote, you are simply looking to see if an image appears and then you can choose to accept that resolution.

The cable box wouldn't have anything to do with it. The only other thing I can think of would be to run through the resolutions using the remote, by holding the menu and volume down buttons for 5 seconds and then release. It will switch to a new one every 20 seconds.

It would have made more sense to get the 4th gen or wait until you had a 4K set as you won't see any difference, as it is your set is barely capable of 720P. However, have you tried another HDMI cable?

Thank you for your reply - yes - I did try a different cable. Do you think the cable TV box has anythng to do with this issue? although the cable box is not connected to HDMI on the TV set, perhaps it affects the set up? I will swap the 4k out for an older apple TV in a couple of months. But for now, it is easiest to set this one up as I won't have access to the older one for several months. So barring a bad HDMI cable, you can't think of another solution? what do I do?

I didn't think the cable box would impact it - but I am grasping for straws... I am not sure I understand what the resolutions are. Am I holding these buttons down on the Pioneer remote or the apple TV? Thanks again for your help!!
