    If you are going to connect a 2014 Blu Ray with HDMI only connection through a Kanex Pro HDMI to component converter to a analog/digital TV with no hdmi input, it will NOT work due to new laws passed by the government for the sake of the entertainment industry.[*]I did not know this until I tried to connect the two. Basically if you have an OLD TV with no hdmi input , your stuck or you have to find and purchase a Blu Ray that was built before 1/1/2013with component/composite cables .I'm sure the KanexPro converter would be a good purchase otherwise. Can't really rate the product since I returned it.

    Though B&H's technical support assured me this video converter would allow me to use the Google Chromecast to work, thereby making it possible to wirelessly surf the web and play videos with my HD component TV, this turned out not to be the case, unfortunately.

    All I was able to get were angular running lines on the TV screen but no picture and no sound.

    B&H customer support was very understanding and helpful as they allowed me to return the item for a full refund. In future, I will not hesitate to shop with B&H. They stand by their products and service is excellent.

      Comments about KanexPro HDMI to Component Converter with Audio:

      Many people told me an X Box One could not be ran through a converter. Because my older HD tv only accepts component hook ups, I decided to give this a try. I think it works great. My son and I already have several hours of Madden 15 under our belts.

          Xbox 1 has no "component out"; our specified gaming TV has no "HDMI in". The Kanex Pro solves the problem, delivering HD quality graphics & respectable audio. Simple setup takes seconds. Loses a star due to price; that being said, rumor has it that less expensive converters are less reliable...

              I bought this product to hook my xbox one to my non-hdmi TV. It only works on 720p and the screen is not centered and shifted to the left. What's weird is if I plug in my xbox 360, it works on 1080i but the screen is still not centered. I tried contacting the support on this website but they said no one is familiar enough with the product to help me so they directed me to KanexPro's support where they have yet to reply.

                Didn't work on 1080i but is perfect with 480i and 720i. Note: I had to take my new Sony DVD player to a new TV to change it from 1080i to 480i. Then I took it back to my older HDTV and plugged it in and voila! Otherwise, I never would have gotten to the menu and it would not have worked.

                I needed to get an HDMI to component video adapter as my TV is of the 2003 era. My goal was to use my laptop to drive the TV to watch online content. I had connected it to a laptop that worked on a direct connection via HDMI to a newer TV. When connecting through the adapter, this did not work and it looked like something was out of sync. I then tried my current laptop and that worked for a while. By worked, I mean that I got video but no audio. I then tried to unplug the HDMI and plug it back in again. This resulted in the same lack of sync between the signaling. I was going to ask to return this when this request for a review came up. So I decided to give my review and I will pursue the return. I'm sure B&H will be helpful in this endeavor.

                  I'm using this to convert video from my WD media player (Western Digital version of Apple TV) into my Yamaha RX-1400 A/V Receiver and thenInto my Sony Bravia TV (component connections). All video formats are converted (mp4, avi, mkv). As one other user mentioned there is a slight horizontal shift. Hardly a deal breaker for me. I was able to compensate for it in my Sony TV's video settings somewhat but not completely. When watching 4:3 content you can tell, because it's not centred on the screen but you don't lose any picture and the video quality is excellent. When watching 16:9 content it is barely noticeable and again the quality is excellent. I would recommend this product and I enjoy being able to switch easily between my WD media player and my cable box through my older receiver.

                      Comments about KanexPro HDMI to Component Converter with Audio:

                      I ordered 4 of these to use with my Broadcasting classes NewTek Tricaster. For any of you using a TriCaster they have component level imputs for HD. Most consumer level cameras will output in HD, but only via HDMI (not component video).I took the HDMI output from a inexpensive Sony camcorder into the KanexPro, then component video from the KanexPro into the TriCaster. Worked like a charm. I also tried it with a slightly higher end Canon camcorder and the NewTek would not recongnize it. I believe this is becuas the Canon would only output at 1080P, and the NewTek only supports up to 1080i. Not the Kanex Pro's fault...but just be warned that if you are attemting to get HDMI inputs on your TriCaster using the Kanex Pro adapters, not all cameras will work.

                          I connected this to my older HD Projector that did not have HDMI or DVI connections.
                          My connection Method:
                          Laptop HDMI out to HD Projector

                          On first connect I did not get any video to the projector. The LED showed it was connected but no video. I disconnected the box, unplugged the power, and started over.
                          1. First I powered back up the box.
                          2. Connected the HDMI Cable to my computer
                          3. Connected the HDMI Cable to the Box
                          4. Light on the box shows connected so I connected the component cables from the box to the Projector
                          5. The projector now shows there is an input. I switch to the input and I now have video.

                          The picture looks pretty good. For some reason I don't have my complete screen showing. The very bottom of the screen is cut off. This normally isn't a problem except when I host Karaoke it cuts off the text that shows who is singing next.

                          Other than that it seems to be working as it should. Great product.

Basically if you have an OLD TV with no hdmi input , your stuck or you have to find and purchase a Blu Ray that was built before 1/1/2013with component/composite cables .I'm sure the KanexPro converter would be a good purchase otherwise. Can't really rate the product since I returned it.

                                I didn't want to buy a new HD TV since I have a good working projection TV but wanted to buy and enjoy the Xbox One. However, this converter was necessary to keep both and it works just fine! I'm glad my brother researched the requirements and found B&H. I didn't know they sold such a vast array of products until I browsed their magazine. I will be purchasing other tech products from them and I recommend the converter. It saved the day for me by

                                      I was quite interested in this converter, since lightning took out the HDMI port on our TV. But I checked out the warning in the last line of the description, and, sure enough, the Apple TV v2 and v3 does use "HDCP encrypted HDMI".

                                      The HDMI input to one of our televisions was damaged by a lightning strike and no longer works. This allowed us to connect an XBOX One to the TV without using the HDMI input. Yes, I've got a good API surge protector on all my electronics now.

                                          I purchased this converter to use an old Pioneer Elite rear projection HD TV with my Mini Tivo. It does a good job of allowing me to connect the TiVo's HDMI port to my television's component and audio inputs.

                                            My son got the new Xbox One for Christmas and unfortunately it only has HDMI output and cable. The Big Screen HDTV has Component inputs. I called B&H sales and was told this would work. I ordered it and got it that Friday. Very simple to hook up and it works great with no distortion.
                                            Thanks B&H

                                                  Low cost fix to an expensive problem! The HDMI ports went out on my monitor I use for editing and viewing content. It is a 1080i monitor with component inputs also. The cost to repair the HDMI ports was cost prohibitive, even if the parts had been available.
                                                  I ran the 1080 HDMI signal from my computer into the converter, and the 3 component cables into the monitor. Looks great! No adjustment. Great tool to fix a problem at a very reasonable price point.
