            The A/V to HDMI is a great product when hooking up to a new TV that only has HDMI inputs and the source only has composite video and audio for the output. I love it.

                  I bought 2 of these, the 1st one worked great. the 2nd one was DOA. I returned for a replacement, and that replacment was also DOA, and it was in new sealed packaging. So 2 out 3 DOA is not a good track record. I will try something else that is hopefully more reliable.

                          Comments about KanexPro Composite or S-Video with Audio to HDMI Converter:

                          One of my large RETAIL clients had an application where they were using a LIVE camera feed (Composite Video)to provide image magnification at a cooking demonstration area. One of the 42" flat panel display units recently failed due to a massive power surge.
                          When the replacement display unit showed up, the new unit did not support Composite Video so we had to use this (KanexPro) video format convertor to provide an HDMI interface. It worked perfectly and was very easy to conceal in the rear mounting hardware.

                          I truly appreciate simple and elegant technical solution products like this.
