hi all - does anyone know of a converter which can input component (RGB) video and output RCA...?  loss of signal quality does not matter as this is for a small 576i PiP box on my TV screen - the TV can only use coaxial or RCA as an input for the second picture (yay).

basically like this device here:
https://sewelldirect.com/component-ypbpr-rgb-rca-to-composite-yellow-rca-and-s-video-converter-w-down-scaler?source=froogle&utm_source=froogle&utm_medium=cse&cvsfa=1306&cvsfe=2&cvsfhu=53572d3232333039

unfortunately they don't ship outside US :(

any help much appreciated :)

I think you mean Component to Composite. RCA is the type of plug/socket. ;-)

I think Jaycar have one or two options, or at least I'm sure they used to.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

thanks for reply - i checked there but i'm pretty sure they only have component to HDMI and then HDMI to composite via separate converters... would basically cost 300 + total, cheaper to buy a separate small monitor for the component signal lol.

Component and RGB are not the same either (generally). Component (yPbPr) from an AV device like a DVD player, RGB from a computer video card. Make sure whatever converter you get has the right input for your source.

Pretty sure they used to have kits that did the job. I guess they don't carry them anymore. Perhaps try one of the Chinese suppliers like Aliexpress etc?
