I just purchased an HDMI to S-video or composite decoder that I'm going to use with a standalone DVD recorder. I was trying to find a receiver that had HDMI inputs and have the A/V signals show up at a composite output but no luck.

Which makes me wonder -- how well this converter is going to work?

The goal is to record internet video in real time (you tube if I can get away with it) as I watch it.

Anyone try this? What about copy protection problems? (if any)

Just thought I'd full screen the video on the HTPC and hit record on the DVD recorder. Thanks.

Do you have a computer? With a web browser? Download them. That's what I do. That gets you the best PQ. As to whether an SD recording is good enough, that's your call.
A quick search of AVS seems to have an answer to your question: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1335030/hdmi-to-component-or-s-video-composite-converters/0_40

PS: Searching AVS with 'ViewHD Converter' gets hundreds of hits.

exactly what I don't want to do -- hence this approach.

30 minutes in real time vs download, conversion and burning to dvd + all my time involved.

2 to 3 times more time and effort.

Well then try it and decide if you like it. You said you already bought the converter. FWIW downloading is only real time on DSL and Dial-Up.

For future readers of this thread:

I just downloaded a 2 hour movie from YouTube and using 2 pieces of software (AVS2DVD and ImgBurn) had a playable DVD of it in under an hour including download time. I was also able to watch TV and surf the interwebs at the same time.
