Chromecast on TV without HDMI
I have a somewhat older HD TV. I want to buy a HD component cable to HDMI converter off eBay. If I plug a Google Chromecast into the new HDMI will it still function as it is supposed to?
Here is the setup I am looking at doing:
- TV (With Component Cable slots instead of HMDI)
- Male Component Cable to Male HDMI converter
- Female HDMI to Female HDMI converter
- Chromecast (using male HDMI)

Re: Chromecast on TV without HDMI
The problem as I see it would be HDCP. If the CC is forced to adhere to that as a requirement your plan is a no go. No analog connection will get HDCP on it ever.
If it doesn't you have a chance.
HDCP could also be application specific. Like it may be required for Play Movies, but not for Plex or other apps that do local content.
