I have yet to find any "cable" that does this. I have seen conversion hardware in the few hundred dollar range but you wrote "cable" so my answer must be "no."
I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I can?t seem to find it.
I am trying to connect my pc to my Yamaha receiver, to my HD projector. My receiver only has component, S-Video, Optical, and composite inputs and out puts. My projector has 2 component, 1 D5, 2 VGA, 1 composite and a single DMI input which will not work any more. I tried to force 1080 across it and now it won?t work. My computer has 1 VGA, 1 HDMI, and 1 DMI output (the DMI will not support red blue green output)
The way it is hooked up now is Charter HD DVR to Yamaha through component. Xbox 360 to Yamaha component. DVD player S-video (plan to buy a Blue ray player next year but will have the same hookup problem) PC optical for sound no video hookup yet. All devices are hooked up Optical for sound except the DVD player it is coaxle. Yamaha receiver is connected to HD projector with one Component cable.
I have seen these cables that go from HDMI on one end to Component on the other. I really wish this would work but I fear I will get the same outcome I got when I tried that with a DMI cable. Although the DMI output did not support Red Blue Green out it did give me 1280 by 1024, but not 1080i.
Does anyone know if an HDMI to Component cable will work, or will I have to buy an expensive upconverter? Do they make just a switch that has HDMI in and Component out or maybe would support all components with several different inputs and one component output? It would still have to convert I guess because most switch box's you have to have the same out as in?
Any help will be appreciated.
