Works Great For Specific Applications,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: eForCity 538581 HDMI to 5 RCA Cable, 5-Feet (Electronics)
These cables are almost exactly what I was looking for. We ran BlueRigger HDMI Cable (35 feet) - CL3 Rated for In-wall Installation- supports 3D and Audio Return [Latest HDMI version] in the wall from closet where the cable box and DVD player are located to the corner of the room where the the armoire cabinet that holds the LCD TV (which fits perfectly in the cabinet) was located. The problem we ran into was the TV is a little dated and only has composite video (RGB) inputs. I installed two of these cables using $2 female/female couplers (one at at each end of the HDMI cable) and the picture and sound are great. I'm ordering two more sets to connect the DVD player.
I only rated it 4 stars because I needed the PTC Premium GOLD Series HDMI Female/Female Coupler and because I ordered it on November 26th and it didn't show up until December 14th.
BEWARE this cable will NOT convert a digital HDMI signal to analog composite video. It is just cabling, you need an adapter box like ViewHD Universal HDMI to Composite / AV Video Converter, Support PAL / NTSC Standard TVs to perform that job. It would be less confusing to people if this cable came with a female HDMI connection on one end and composite video on the other.

This is the exact issue I'm looking to solve with this cable. Glad to see someone else has tested the approach for me.
