I have a PS3, and I want to plug it into my 15" 1024 x 768 Dell monitor to play games. I want to get the full 1024 x 768 so I don't want to use composite/ component (red white and yellow) out. The monitor only supports VGA analog signals. Is there a way to convert the HDMI Digital signal to analog VGA. My monitor does NOT support HDCP (High-Bandwith Digital Content Protection). So the converter must get around that security. I've seen videos, but they never address the HDCP. And if possible, can I do this inexpensively? HELP

Component can handle HD, composite can't. These are two different types of connection. Composite is red, white yellow. Component is red, green, blue.

See the chart for supported modes.

HDMI requires HDCP, component does not.

Does PS3 have a component version of the red white and yellow output. The video out put on the PS3 end? Not HDMI. And if so. Could i use a component to VGA adapter. ?

As I said, don't confuse component with composite. It two different signaling types. just because the cables are different colors doesn't mean they are interchangable.

Composite is red (audio-right), white, (audio-left) and yellow (video). Component uses all 3 cables for video and you need seperate audio. Also, I may have confused the right and left audio channels on the composite, but they are audio.

The link I posted above shows you exactly what the ps3 has and is capable of.

Okay I understand, I just wanted to know if the component plugged into the same place that the composite wouldn't (in the ps3) but my question was answered
