Comcast X1 converter box with AppleTV

Comcast X1 converter box with AppleTV

Can I plug my AppleTV into the back of my Comcast X1 converter box?

 

I only have 1 HDMI port on my TV, so I plug my Comcast X1 converter box into the TV.

On the back of the Comcast X1 converter box there are 2 empty HDMI ports open.

How would I access my Apple TV through the Comcast X1 converter box?

The X1 cable box (and pretty much most if not all of the cable boxes) do not have active HDMI ports in them, so you won't really be able use them for anything unfortunately.

Because you only have one HDMI on the tv get a HDMI switch
