I have a Beovision Avant 32 DVD TV and am very happy with it. We bought an Apple TV device today though and I have now realised there is obviously no HDMI input port in the back of my TV. Can you advise me on what to do? Do you know which of the remaining ports it should go into and therefore what adaptor I need? I read on an apple forum that I may need to connect the audio separately. I appreciate this is an apple issue but I'm not sure how technically savvy they are about the Beovision technology. Many thanks

Dan

Hi there,

You'll need an HDMI to Scart converter box or HDMI to RCA box.

Please give these a try...

Earlier versions of apple TV have non HDMI outputs Normal plugs.  There are heaps of them on eBay.  You just need a RCA to Scart adapter.

If the Avant can accept a component signal, you just need a rca component to scart adapter.

It the Avant only accepts s-video or composite you'll need a software hack to get a composite color signal out of a 1st generation Apple Tv !

 

With the recent Apple TV (3rd generation) the hdmi to scart/composite adapter should be suitable.

Please do remember, that the ATV1 has no native support for AirPlay.

Since the op already has bought the ATV3, he'll need a converter solution.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

I use a very inexpensive HDMI to Video converter like the one posted previously on my Avant 32 and it works surprisingly well.

So sorry Dom: am just looking to buy the right hardware for my APPLE TV to Beovision Avant TV DVD and still can't figure out what to get. You said I need the HDMI to Video converter  -what do they mean by video? Do you mean Scart/RCA...even then I'm not sure what it would look like - is it a cable with hdmi at one end, a box in the middle and another plug at the other end? This is a massive ask but could you possible take a photograph of what you have and/or add the model number so i can find it online? I'm so sorry to be such a pain, I am just no clearer on what to buy even after everyone has been so helpful!

Hi there. This will definitely solve your problem.

You have the wonderful Apple TV now...

1. You will need a HDMI lead. You can buy these at your Apple store or even some supermarkets.

2. You will need a scary to scary lead.

3. Finally you will need a HDMI to scart box. This one will do nicely

4. That's it. Your Apple TV will work well with the Avant

 

Hope this helps,

Paul

Hoping to resurrect this thread as I'm currently having difficulty with a similar issue.

Have 28" RF Avant with 4th Gen Apple TV.

ATV is connected through HDMI converter box with RCAs into V.Aux on Avant.

I get the picture fine but no sound. On the settings on the ATV I have it set to stereo but there are no settings on the ATV for PCM etc.

Anyone have any clues as to why no sound?

Many thanks

Ben

Audio Mode has been set at 16 Bit but I've tried basically all the (limited) settings on the new ATV menu with absolutely no luck.

Hi,

Wondering if you had any luck getting your 4th Gen Apple tv to work. I have a Beovision 5 and have tried two different types of converter- 

This-           http://www.amazon.co.uk/ESYNiC-Digital-Composite-Converter-Xbox360/dp/B00A6STNHM/ref=sr_1_25?ie=UTF8&qid=1451812678&sr=8-25&keywords=convert+hdmi+to+scart

and this:  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Convert-Adapter-Converter-Support-AC280/dp/B015W8FQ9Y/ref=sr_1_35?ie=UTF8&qid=1451812749&sr=8-35&keywords=convert+hdmi+to+scart

Neither have worked.  I've also tried both of these with my Sky HD and can't get any picture or sound.  I'm running out of options. I don't want to get a new TV but it may be the only way forward.

Hi, I am new here and just been able to pick up a Avant 32 DVD player. I have successfully got my apple box working and free to air but the picture doesnt fill the screen. I am waiting on a controller from eBay. Is there a function on the remote to fox this. As its pretty small at the mo, so need it to fill the entire screen. Any ideas

 

Cheers
