AppleTV with my TV?

I want to buy an AppleTV. I have a standard definition TV, but it is widescreen, and I know the AppleTV supports its resolution. But my TV only has composite and SCART inputs. Any ideas how I can link the AppleTV's HDMI or composite ports to my TV?

Belkin wi-fi problem!

I bought a Belkin N1 wireless basestation about six months ago and I was really pleased with the range and speed I get in the places in my flat where I usually want to connect to the net. Not any more. In a couple of places the network appears to have vanished. I haven't changed the settings, I have rebooted the N1. There are a fair few networks aroundabouts, but not so many as I can detect when I'm in the office, and I have no problems connecting there (different basestation though). Help!

HD-DVD or Blu-ray?

Should I buy an HD DVD player or a Blu-ray Disc player - maybe a PS3, but I'm not a gamer? Or should I stay sitting on the fence? I do fancy 300 in HD, though...

Best big TVs?

Simple question: plasma or LCD? I'm looking for a 37in screen (or thereabouts) and what I've seen of plasmas I like and what I've seen of LCDs I don't. Should I go plasma then? The price is putting me off, though, and the lack of free-to-air HD. Thoughts?
