Owners of some older plasma and LCD TVs without HDMI inputs are finding themselves stuck with watching Standard Definition (SD) pictures from HD sources even though they have high resolution panels.

HDMI to component video converters are available but the HDMI content protection system HDCP forces the component video output down to 480i resolution.
