    Hi,

    I like to know where I can either get a cable that is DVI to Component or a DVI to Component adapter? If anyone knows a website or websites. Please post? Thanks this will help me out greatly.

    I don't think there's any such thing. I suggest trying the cable company websites, but I don't see how such a hybrid could work. It's usually DVI and/or component, not DVI to component. Never heard of an adapter either, but good luck in solving the problem.

    Some DVI connectors include analog pins, but usually, they're used for connecting a VGA display. See this site for more details.

    I think the connector you are looking for is a "receiver." [​IMG] Seriously, I'd have to agree with the above posts that it doesn't seem right that you could get a simple cable adapter that will convert the DVI's digital information to the component's analog information.
