Looking for hardware that converts HDMI to Component that is HDCP Compliant

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, due to my lack of knowledge about HDCP & HDMI's love circle, I need to find something that can convert HDMI to Component Cables that is HDCP compliant.

I found the HD Fury, but didn't find a distributor that was on the other side of the pond (need one in Canada, or US).

I then got looking at others, but I am not sure if they are REALLY hdcp compliant.

Does anyone have experience in this field?

You may ask "well why don't you just buy a new TV?", because it isn't up to me, and my dad thinks our panasonic television that outputs to 720p, using only component cables, is fine. The nice thing about this TV is that it uses blades to expand input/output. However, I haven't been able to find an HDMI blade anywhere.

seems like the ones that are hdcp compliant are over 200 bucks. At that price, a new tv sounds like a better proposition. Can i ask what the source is? Might be cheaper to get a source that'll just shoot out video via component.

The source is HDMI.

While I would much rather get a new TV, I have continually tried to barter to have them see the light that an HDMI TV is the way to go, unfortunately, they don't think it is the right decision, because the TV that we have still works fine.
