Your Monoprice component to composite converter is the wrong device. You need a converter that converts TO component with 3 RCA jacks for the Channel Plus 5415 HD box input jacks.
Which model of the Edirol/Roland do you have, the V-4 or V-4EX?
RGB and Component are not synonymous. If you have the V-4EX, the output is not true component with 3 RCA jacks, it is RGB 15 pin sub-D for projectors.
What is the difference between RGB and Component
a good answer
The Channel Plus 5414HD has component inputs that look like this:
But if you have the V-4EX, it doesn't have output jacks like that.
page 19 of the V-4EX manual says you can convert from HDMI to USB with the VC-30HD, but I don't see component out:
Looking at the VC-30HD spec sheet seems to confirm that because I don't see component output:
So, you will need a composite to component converter, not a component to composite converter, or an HDMI to component converter.
If that doesn't work, you will need a different QAM modulator.
