I promised my son a converter so he can connect his Boxee box to some of his old school devices.

Searching on Amazon, none of the HDMI to composite devices get very good reviews.

Anyone have an inexpensive one they can recommend?

off the top my head, i'm not sure what you want exists, at least anything that will work with hdcp.... various converters do exist, but without hdcp support...

none of the "cables" people sell will work though... it would have to be an active device (hdmi is digital, composite is analog and you can't passively convert from one to the other)...

Thanks for your reply. I didn't think HDCP would be enforced when downgrading to SD analog. Ugh.

In case anyone else is looking for an answer to this, over on the Boxee forum I found two devices available on Amazon, and one of them was recommended as working well with the Boxee:
