Apple Set Top Box
From Mac Guides
In the mid-1990s, Apple made an attempt at a Cable Box type device that would be able to download content from cable networks, view TV, and work like a computer. The project was never completed or any of the units sold, but a good amount of prototype machines are floating around. There is not a lot of information about these devices, but there were at least three major revisions.
- Composite Video Out
- Stereo Composite Audio Out
- S-Video Out
- Apple Serial port
- ADB port (On front side of machine)
- Two SCART ports
- Coaxial In (for cable TV)
- Coaxial Out (out to TV)
- The Apple Set Top Box was never released and is a prototype.
- There are "Do Not Remove" labels over the two SCART ports on the back of the unit
- The Apple Set Top Box is black in color
- Apparently, according to the sticker on the bottom of the unit, the Apple Set Top Box was not FCC approved at the time.
- There is an On/Off switch on the Power Supply in the back of the unit, and a Power button on the front of the unit.
