Can an HDMI input signal output over component video?

Can an HDMI input signal output over component video via a properly equipped A/V receiver? My television is an older HDTV that lacks any HDMI or DVI connections (component video, only); I am hoping to use an HDMI-only DVD player with my television...

However, go search the forum at AVS for an Oppo "hack". People have successfully got the 970 or 971 (can't remember which), to output 1080i via component. Oppo states this voids the warranty, big deal, beats having to buy a new tv.

HDMI (and DVI) is a pure, fully digital signal. All others are analog.
