Not sure if this is the proper place to ask, but it seemed the best I could locate. I'm not really using the machine for HTPC purposes so much as video editing, but I'm looking for a breakout box if one exists that will allow me to output HD 720p/1080i via COMPONENT cables off a firewire interface. My problem is that I'm using an iMac which only has the mini-display port and will only allow me to use a dvi connection. I've played with using a dvi to hdmi adapter, but I don't get true tv video resolution, only close to tv resolution. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with breakout boxes that offered HD video output that could be recommended for this purpose? I really don't want to have to switch to a mac pro just to be able to use an internal card that has the video out capability. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

"Composite" is limited to 480i.

My apologies, I meant to say 'Component'. I really wish they would have given a better name that was significantly further sounding from composite. But in any case, yes, Component at 720p/1080i. Thank you for pointing out my ignorant mistake.
