Want to use component to HDMI and bypass HDCP?

If I use component cables from the source to bypass the HDCP in HDMI, can I passthrough the signal through a recorder to a display device with an HDMI cable? Or will the HDCP kick in again?

source -> component cables -> recorder -> HDMI -> display device

Highly unlikely your recorder would add HDCP to a signal that didn't already have it, you should be OK.

What type of recorder are we talking about? Because no consumer HDTV recorder and few professional recorders can record full bandwidth HD. So there's a good chance the HDMI output from such a recorder will be re-compressed and not very well either.

And there is also an option for devices to downrez HD component outputs on HDCP sources but I don't think any content producer ever employed that. Plus, cable and satellite aren't allowed to downrez component outputs per the FCC, only Bluray can.

I was going to record on a capture card with a PC. 1080i is not mandatory, 720p should be fine for me. I'm debating whether to use a active splitter so I can record through the PC with a monitor while being able to watch on my tv at the same time. Not a deal breaker though.

You probably ought to tell us what your source is and your objective is. There may be a better way to accomplish your goals.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
