I am using a 1080distribution hub www.1080distribution.com with Control4 to distribute TV to multi rooms.
The 1080 is HD over component and Cat6. To allow HD from My Sky I have an HDMI to Component converter, however the converter: www.cdynamics.co.nz/productimages/pdfs/hdmihd02.pdf spec says HDCP compliant - when input is HDCP encrypted the component out will be turned off.
My question is, how do I know I am getting full HD? and can I with this converter?
When TV (Hitachi 42' Plasma) is turned on to sky it says 576 - even on sky sport HD/Movies HD
When TV is turned on to Control4 it sayd 720 - so hub is sending different resolutions fine.
Sky is set to Auto for HD resolution, if I change it to specific output such as 720 the tv goes blank - presumably the converter has shut off the output.
(and yes HD ticket is turned on)
