SOURCE: I'm trying to connect apple
Invalid format means that the signal coming from the Apple tv is in a format your tv can't support - there is nothing you can do in the tv to fix that: the tv searches thru all the formats it can display automatically, if it can't recognize it it gives that message. You will have to connect the Apple TV to the tv set using the analogue connectors - the round, colored RCA ones - they send an signal that is recognized by all tv's.
If your unit is the newer model, without the RCA ones, then you must change the resolution: from the manual
1 Press and hold both MENU and + on the Apple Remote for about 6 seconds.
2 Press + or - on the Apple Remote to cycle through the display resolutions.
3 When Apple TV reaches an acceptable display resolution and "If you can see the Apple
logo, select OK" appears on your TV screen, press PLAY.
