Product Description

If you have a component (YPbPr or Red, Green, Blue RCA interfaces) source that you need to display on a TV with a composite input (typically yellow RCA) or S-Video, this converter is perfect for you. This converter also handles audio pass-through with dual RCA input on the component side and 3.5mm stereo output on the composite side. Why The Conversion Box? Component and composite/s-video signals are two very different signals. With component, the video signal is divided into three different signals in order to theoretically transmit up to 3 times as much video information, making component capable of handling HD resolutions up to 1080p. Composite and S-Video (both the same signal) don't have high definition capabilities and handle all video over a single conductor. This conversion box not only integrates the RGB component signal into the composite signal (something a simple cable can't do), and also downscales the signal to fit the resolution of your standard definition composite TV. This converter also includes a PAL/NTSC switch (PAL for European/Asian (except Japan) users, NTSC for North American/Japanese users)

If you are looking for a product to allow you to use newer A/V equipment (i.e. 1st Generation AppleTV) with an older TV, this conversion box works very well. Simple, easy setup, cables included.

This product has solved the problem of coupling Component video (with audio) from my DirecTV Satellite HD receivers to analogue modulators, enabling me to control the receivers from another room that became a problem wihtn DTV updated the software in their HD DVR's. Excellent product and excellent service from the supplier.

The unit performed as advertised, but after 10 months the output video signal failed (sound was still there) and the red led power light began blinking. After some examination, I was able to establish that the AC adapter that provides 5 volt DC power to the unit has failed. I have contacted Sewell and hopefully they will address this issue. If so, I will update this review.

Does a pretty good job. I used it to convert a component signal from a media player to s-video to play on a 7 inch car monitor. The picture is much more crisper then the video rca signal i had been getting. The colors are a little on the "hot" side but an upgrade none the less. It comes with all the cables necessary. It runs off of 5 volts so, potentially I believe, I can mod it to run off a usb adapter.

Purchased this converter to deal with the guide issue on DIRECTV's HD receivers. My configuration is HR24-200 receiver with HD cable to HD TV. 2nd connection is 25ft component cable from receiver to sewell converter to composite cables split with y-connectors to 3 other SD TV,s. One set of composite cables go to the composite hook-up on 1 SD TV. Other composite cable gets split with y-connectors again and 1 goes to an composite hook-up on 2nd SD TV and other composite goes to an RF modulator, which sends a coaxial cable to the 3rd SD TV. System really works well, with a crystal clear picture on all the TV's. Plus there is no guide issue with this set-up.

I needed to use the component out on my Directv recvr to be able to output hd to different tv's simultaneously. I was completely surprised to find every cable that I needed already in the box. Also, be sure to flip the switch from PAL to NTSC.

This converter does what it advertises, but produces a fairly crappy picture. Everything is just a bit blurry. It's fine for watching generic sitcoms, but any sports, racing, news program, or even directory guide will have blurry text that is hard to read. I realize it's a tall order to take a 1080 signal and squeeze it to a 480i format, but I've seen other devices do it better. Frankly, even setting my input signal to 480i doesn't make this do anything better.

I bought this so that I could run my DirecTV receiver in HD mode and use the component out to feed 3 other TV's in my house. I connect DTV box --> this component-to-composite converter --> composite-to-coax transceiver, then pump the signal through my COAX to the rest of the house. I previously used the composite output from the DTV box to do the same, but DTV recently "upgraded" their software such that it cannot produce a high-resolution HDMI output and a low-resolution composite output at the same time. I was thinking that this component would allow me to get better signal than what the DTV composite output was producing. I was quite wrong. The composite output from the DTV box actually produces a decent picture. The composite output from this device is significantly worse.

So ... I'll probably keep the device because it's kind of useful even if the picture quality is terrible. I'm not sure it's worth $50, though.
