Hi,

Using a HDMI to component cable may have damaged the HDMI output circuitry of the Apple TV3 . You cannot convert a Digital video signal (HDMI) to an Analogue video signal (component) with just a cable connection. You need to use a converter such as in this example http://www.hdtvsupply.com/convert--hdmi-...

Here is one of many links regarding this problem.
