XtremeMac intros cables, HDMI switcher for Apple TV

XtremeMac has introduced a line of home audio and video cables for the new Apple TV streaming media device. The XtremeHD product line also includes a four-port HDMI switcher designed to complement the Apple TV. The XtremeHD cables include: HDMI to HDMI ($20), HDMI to DVI ($20), Component Video ($20), Toslink Optical Audio ($20), and RCA stereo ($15). The XtremeHD four-port HDMI switcher, which will be available next month, enables users to connect up to four HDMI sources—such as Apple TV, DVD players, satellite systems and DVRs—and then connect to a single HDMI input on a television. Any one of the connected video sources can then be selected using the button on the front of the HDMI switcher or via the included remote control.

It’s nice to see someone coming out with reasonably priced digital cables.

What we need is a cable that will convert composite video to component so we can use this device with our normal TVs.

I dunno if it will even work with Standard Definition TVs:

“Apple TV works with widescreen, enhanced-definition or high-definition TVs capable of 1080i, 720p, 576p, or 480p resolutions.”

timmy,

i think you mean component to composite, plus why would you want to downscale the video.  you need to get a “normal” tv with dvi or hdmi.
