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?
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.
