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)

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.

The only sort of converter that would likely work would probably be more expensive than a new TV. Dealing with HDCP handshaking is not trivial and not cheap. You can thank Hollywood for treating customer like thieves for this nonsense.
