    Does HDMI converter get around the copy protection issue?

      Hi, many of the DirecTV channels are copy protected but my directv receiver only supports hdmi output.  If I buy an HDMI to component cable converter, does this actually get around the copy protection issue?  It seems the directv box would still block channels because the hdmi out is being used but the converter of course doesn't understand copy protection - so, I would assume the directv box would still block channels.

       

      Thanks
