I have been looking for the "perfect" fanless HTPC that has component (YPB
) video outputs but it looks like all current fanless PCs now come with HDMI (and/or VGA) output only.
So I was thinking of making a compromise and buy whatever is available today (HDMI), then externally attach an "HDMI To Component converter" (I really need this compatibility with one older subsystem that I prefer not to replace right now).
But somehow I got the impression that the commercially available such converters have significant limitations and/or don't work in all circumstances (like component video does). Is this true?
If this isn't true, can you recommend a reasonably priced HDMI To Component converter?
The following converter, for example, is certainly within my affordable price range, but I don't know how it works. Any real-life experience with it?http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6815276024
Then there is model in Amazon, with conflicting (and thus confusing) reports regarding is functionality:http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-RCA-componen ... B002WBOQPU
Lastly, there is this "industrial grade" model but its price is way beyond what I am willing to spend on a converter:http://r.ebay.com/yFGTex
