Currently I'm testing the converter using my Playstation 3 Slim. The converter itself is this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ICFJJTS/ref=pe_385721_37038051_TE_3p_dp_1
Hi, sorry for the late response. The thing is it IS supposed to support HD, only up to 720p but still better than standard def. I've had it connected to my computer for a couple of years and when watching say Netflix, which plays HD quality when the connection is good, the picture is superb.
The BNC sockets at the back are designed to take HD- and SD-SDI cables for standard def AND high def picture.
But the chances are I need more than one cable to make up a component bundle, which will probably also mean looking for a much more expensive converter, which still may not even work anyway.
So I think it might be better off sending the converter back and buying a much cheaper HDMI-to-VGA converter instead...
Ok thank you very much for all your help, I will look into the RCA/BNC adaptor approach. The only problem I can see with it is that to buy enough BNC cables to attach to the PS3 component leads, I'll be spending even more money than I'd originally intended and I'm really looking for a solution that benefits my computers, DVD player AND the PS3. And on top of that this correspondence has set me back £22 and I was really hoping for cost effective solution. I will look into it though.
All the best
I agree yes! I'm going to return the original converter, try the cheap VGA option and if that doesn't work, I will of course go ahead with your suggestion.
