Thanks, I don't know what agreement I signed up for when I bought the Mac Mini with HDMI output, but I think this is absolutely fair use. All I'm trying to do is get the Mac Mini to connect to the analog CRT TV. Thanks for the heads up though, I'll keep in mind the sensitivity around the subject. This probably explains why the guy at Best Buy had never heard of such a product.
I'll shop around. but if you know of a product that could work, could you send it to me?
