OK, Let me try this again. I do have a converter. I wanted to know if I could run the HDMI from the X1 box to the Component Video in on the converter using the cables and run Component Video out from the converter to the HDMIi in on the TV. I will assume the HDMI can be plugged into the back of the A/V at the cable in. Sorry about the "rgb" red, green and blue was easier. Also does the stereo RCA on a pass through? Some cables do have a converter in them but I don't need them. Better yet, should I send this M2 back and get the 500, HDMI in, HDMI out? I do have a Slingbox PRO and SOLO but haven't used them since the X1 came along and the WIFI on the M2 sounds better than the Slinbox Media set.
