Customer Reviews

This will not work to connect an HDMI output to an older TV or projector.
Dave
Don't buy one just to try out; unless your manual says it will work, it WILL NOT.
P. Shannon
HDMI is a digital signal, component, composite or s-video are analog signals.

This is a non-standard wiring setup. This setup has routed analog component video through an HDMI socket. HDMI devices normally accept HDMI with digital signals coming in; this cable is not compatible with those (about 99% of the devices). WHERE IT WILL WORK: With devices specifically made to accept an analog signal routed through an HDMI port. These devices are extremely rare, and if you have one, your user's manual will clearly state as much. Unfortunately, because there are a few such devices on the market, there are now "HDMI to Component" cables being marketed in various outlets, and the sellers of these products often do not appear to realize that they will work with only a very small, limited class of devices. Don't buy one just to try out; unless your manual says it will work, it WILL NOT.

Verified Purchase
I'm not sure what this cable is supposed to work with. I bought it to connected the HDMI output of a non-copyprotected digital video recorder to the component input of our TV. I was never able to get the TV to recognize any signal from the DVR using this. Although I was warned in person and on a couple of AV forums that this wouldn't work, I thought it would be worth a try given the low cost. I hope the vendor adds a more detailed description in the future stating what types of HDMI products this cable can work with.

Please ignore the 5 stars rating. I just want to draw your attention so that you can buy one that will work, instead of trouble and aggravation from buying a non-functioning cable. If I had given it one star, it would be buried among the 70 1-star reviews and you probably wouldn't notice it.

My application is trying to connect a HDMI output signal from a Logitech Revue (Google TV) to my TV that only has component/RCA inputs. Like what other reviewers have said, there is no way a cable, without any circuitry, can convert HDMI (digital) signal to component (analog) signal. They make this cable, but it certainly cannot work, hence it had garnered all those 1-star reviews.

What you need is a converter box which houses conversion electronics to do the trick. It costs about $40, so you need to figure if it is worth the investment, or buy a new monitor/TV that has a HDMI input. HDMI to 5 RCA component AV Converter.

On their main website it says this cable can be used to hook your *projector* to your TV. Now, pray tell, what would be the purpose of such a connection? (And I've not seen a projector with an HDMI *output* anyway.)

Lame. Due to the incompatible digital-analog signals (component is analog, HDMI is digital) there is no way this could work without some sort of conversion circuitry. Of course it *will* connect the HDMI and Component ports, they just won't work. ;)

Please save your hard earned money and look elsewhere for "magic."

HDMI = DIGITAL SIGNAL
COMPONENT = ANALOG
As you can see, there is NO POWER SUPPLY or CIRCUIT BOARD that would be REQUIRED to convert a digital HDMI signal into an ANALOG COMPONENT signal! DO NOT BUY! I never knew Amazon had scammers like this, and am surprised they don't have an easy option to report fake products. DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! Don't believe any mention of "oh, it didn't work because you're using a copy-protected HDMI source".. that's total bull sh!7. It doesn't work because IT CAN'T WORK, PERIOD, WITH ANY HDMI SOURCE.

This is the equivalent of a hose that when connected to any faucet turns that water into wine.
The cable does not convert a digital signal to an analog signal. Big bummer.

1. HDMI is digital with pulses and component is analog with waveforms
2. HDMI has 19 pins and component + audio has only 5
3. HDMI has the HDCP copy protection signal whereas there is no component equivalent
4. A cable is a passive device made up of 2 connectors, solder and wires. It cannot convert one digital signal into another analog signal.
