Review on HDMI to Ypbpr Component RGB VGA Converter
HDMI specifications is not going to let your devices to down-convert the HDMI (up-converted or not) to Component Video (as well as its audio) once it’s HDMI. The preamp will be able to up-convert to HDMI in case a non-HDMI equipment is connected to it plus it supports this specific feature, however it doesn’t down-convert. This may be due to the industry of consumer electronics would like all the TV sets to turn into obsolete instantly or it can be also having something related to HDCP (since Hollywood scared of Piracy all the time).
This HDMI to Ypbpr Component RGB / VGA Converter gives you the ability for down-convert, at least to a resolution of Component Video (it is as good as the Component Video even it is not a real 1080P). You can as well connect a desktop LCD monitor to the device by using a switch to set either Component Video or VGA but not both concurrently. It is working just fine with the VGA port as well.
Even though the device is working perfectly with the display, but the audio quality could be rather unacceptable as it keeps making loud cracking noises. This may be just a defect for single product that we tested or maybe just a bad design by nature.
If you try to connect the device with your PS3 on a Sony VPH-D50, you may facing issues by making the PS3 to sync with the Sony VPH-D50. What you need to do is you can just disable the 720p or 1080p setting in the PS3 and it will work perfectly. You may either connect to VGA or Component Video and you can know that it actually looks much better with Component Video at 1080i.
The signal source for this device is 1080i as no RPCRT can actually resolve 1080p. It is best to assume that since the HDMI to Ypbpr Component RGB / VGA Converter is created for CRT displays it may well set the resolution limit to 1080i. You have to ensure that your components source aren’t attempting to output 720p. You can do so by going to the Pace menu to check with a No for 780P. More often than not, many devices didn’t set 1080i as the default output resolution. As long as you managed to set it all up, it will work in good condition.
This device can work with any HD display by going through some calibration work. You also need to make sure that your Blu-Ray player is setting to output with 1080i to enable you to adjust the settings connected to that scan rate. For the transcoder, the only transcoder in which is able to works would be the later HD Furry products.
Just about any issues with image switching to the left and right can be just the setting of resolution which you need to adjust for your input device or your TV. You may experience a little dark picture with the display resolution. If you have a projector, you can play around with the contrast and brightness and you are going to get an excellent display resolution and you can start enjoy watching your favorite movie.
