This is for when you have a DTV Genie and you have to convert the weird non-HDMI output into component video and audio. This is especially useful for running a Slingbox off of a Genie, because DTV does not allow you to use the HDMI input. so you run the the HDMI into your TV and the other output into your Slingbox using this.

I don't post reviews on every item I buy, but I have some information for those people reading the negative reviews that say "this cable doesn't work", that are (understandably) concerned about purchasing it. First, I'm not going to say that no defective cables have ever been shipped, but since this is just a "dumb" cable, no signal conversion or anything, I seriously doubt that's the case with most of the negative reviews... let me explain. If you're buying this cable, there's a good chance that it's to connect a HD DirecTV receiver to an older television... at least, that was my case. I bought this cable, hooked it up between a wireless Genie client receiver and a television with component input, and didn't get any signal (video OR audio) when connected to the television I wanted to use. I thought, like many others stated in their reviews, that it had to be the cables fault... I knew the TV worked, and I knew the receiver worked. On a whim, I used the cable to connect the same receiver to a newer television, and I got signal. I then went in to the video output settings on the receiver and adjusted it down to 480i. When I reconnected the receiver back to the original television... BOOM, it worked fine. Turns out the television I was using wouldn't accept any other signal format (480p, 720p or 1080i). So, if you find yourself in a similar situation, give that a shot.

I needed a Component connection for my HD Box (H25-500) and the installation tech had no idea this cable even existed. Thanks to some internet searching, Amazon, and this seller, I was able to hook up the box without a costly HDMI to Component adapter. Cable was shipped quickly in original packaging and works flawlessly. Did I mention it is at least $15 cheaper than if you buy from Direct TV? Thank you!

I moved to directv and i got the latest HD receiver H25-500. It does not have standard component output, you need this cable to output component (green, red, blue) video and connect to tthe slingbox for remote via internet vieweing of your home programming. This is the DirectV original cable but priced properly. Low cost and fast shipping, a great buy if you need to make your slingbox work again when you move to these latest receivers (single wire management).

I think I may have the last CRT television ever made! HD, flat screen, S-video, composite, component, but no HDMI input. I was already using the composite video output for another television, so that left me with S-video and component for hookup to my main TV. At first I thought the round multi-pin jack on the back of the HD25 was S-video. Got out the S-video cable and went to plug it in and oops - too many pins! Luckily after some research I located this cable, which is Direct TVs way of outputting component video without taking up too much room on the back of the receiver. I don't know why they don't label it "component video" instead of "video out". Took me forever to figure out what "video out" meant. Any way it solved my problem and works great.

Plugged it in and it works. Video is excellent. Very satisfied, especially considering what one would pay for the same cable from the provider.

Yes it works now and I am happy with it. However, it wasn't usable as received. The positions of the ten pins was correct for my H25-500 DirecTV receiver, but the metal ring around the pins (male) was not compatible with the perimeter of the receiver receptacle (female). I had to cut a notch out of the metal ring. The usual reason for the ring is to guarantee correct polarity, but now I will have to be careful if the cable ever gets detached for any reason. I do not know who is at fault.

I was having an issue with my DirecTV Genie client where it would periodically display a blacked out screen. I attempted to switch genie clients, cables, etc, but the only solution seemed to be a hard reset. After a bit of research (many users were experiencing the same issues), I purchased the "Directv H25 Component Video Cable RGB with RCA". I was against the idea of switching away from an HDMI cable, but my frustration level was at a maximum.

The cable was sent quickly and exactly as described. I installed in about 1 minute and was happy to find that it not only fixed the issue through the component cable itself, but also seems to have resolved the issue with my HDMI. Now I have both cables plugged into the TV, but use the HDMI connection exclusively. I've been using this for several months and have had no issues whatsoever.

If you are having the "black screen" issue with your Directv Genie client, then this cable should resolve your issue.

I just got Directv with Genie and this cable works great. To the reviewer who wondered why it does not come with the yellow plug, it's because it's a component cable, not composit. You can see in the photo it does not have a yellow connection. If you have a Directv Genie and need to connect your Slingbox, this is the cable for you.
