The TV only has component inputs... - Page 2

It's great! It works perfectly, sends audio through as well if you only use stereo.

Only problem is if you want to use it on non-HD TV that was component. You'd have to configure the video source to FORCE NTSC on the component adapter. (My computer does not detect the proper NTSC resolution/timing, so I had to do a custom config myself).

I have a similar setup.
Can you please explain how to force NTSC?
My video is scrambled in windows 7 but once I load XBMC it get a solid picture.
Evidently XBMC is forcing NTSC.
How can I force NTSC in windows?

Unfortunately the downside of using te cablecard as opposed to the original configuration is that because of DRM (Digital Rights Management) I can no longer tranfer the recordings to DVD or Blu Ray.

That is where the VHD-H2YVs comes it by using the cloned HDMI output of my computer's videocard fed into the VHD-H2YVs and its component output connected to a HD PVR I should be able to re-encode sans the copy protection in real time. Once this is done I can edit out commercials, create chapters and copy to DVD or Blu Ray.

rawalker (or others),

Was this approach (the part I've bolded above) successful?

I too have a Ceton InfiniTV operating on Windows 7, and would like to "edit out commercials, create chapters, and copy to Blu Ray", as you discussed above. Any thoughts/opinions from anyone out there on ViewHD VHD-H2YVs vs. HDFury? How about Hauppauge 1212 HDPVR vs. Hauppauge Colossus?

Anyone with any experience doing anything like this, the help would be greatly appreciated.

Oooooh... thread resurrection, thread hijack/off-topic post, and requesting information on how to work around DRM!

Three strikes? I won't tell the mods, but I'll just close with this:

They are not identical.

The lower one is a max 1080i cheap copy without 5.1CH audio capability.

Get a new TV.

not to revive an old thread, are you sure its DVI-D and Not DVI-I (Dual Link, Analog and Digital?). If its Analog and Digital, you can get a DVI->Component Cable Online, if its DVI-D it wont have the 4 extra pins/holes on the left side of the port with the flat connection.

If the DVI is All Digital, then you cant convert it to Analog.

HDMI and DVI-D are the same thing essentially, so HDCP would be a Problem on the 1st gen HDTVs (like mine, Sony 30 Inch 16:9, 1080i), it doesn't like HDCP at All.)

But you can take a VGA PIN OUT and plug the individual Color Cables of the YPrPB Cables into certain pins and output that way.

Set device to output 1280x720p @ 60 Hertz.
