When I first got my AppleTV, I hooked it up via HDMI->DVI and tried to  
play a movie I bought from the iTunes store. It said it couldn't play  
via HDMI and I had to hook it up to Component output in order to play.  
Since I was using an Apple Cinema display that only takes DVI, I  
reformatted the AppleTV, tossed out the $9.99 movie I bought and got  
it on NetFlix.

I guess some people see Component as being ok to output and some  
people see HDMI ok to output? I don't get it.
