I have a cable box that gets a digital TV feed. The TV is an old one. Not HDTV, plasma, lcd, etc. Just a standard old TV. Can Apple TV hook up to the cable box and then display on the TV? Thanks

    Accepted Solution

    I've talked to Comcast about all the various ports on their cable box. They seem to know nothing about it, but every time I ask about doing anything, they say it can't be done.

    So my answer would be NO. I would love to hear otherwise. Of course there are many kinds of cable boxes. Mine is several years old but has Ethernet, USB and lots of other cool ports that Comcast says I can't use.
