This seemed like the best place to ask this:

What's the best way to convert a 3-wire progressive component signal into a RGB-HV, 5-wire component signal? We have a progressive DVD player here that needs to be connected to a plasma panel.

Thanks!

Here's a device that does the exact opposite of what I need:

Monstercable via entech has a new box that will convert compsite, s-video and component to RGB. It retails at about $999.

Not only is it expensive (this type of product should not cost more than $300, no matter which projector you are using) and in addition to on HDTV forum they report extron has sync problem on CVC-200. So now you recommend a mercedes that cant take you from point A to point B, while the rest of use a honda without any problems.
