    Hello,

    Yesterday, I've bought this device from a store but was missing the A/V input cable for component video.

    Here are some pictures with the connector and some info about it:

    Here is a picture with the back of the unit with the A/V connector:

    Somebody knows a cheap alternative to this cable instead of modding the unit? Is this a proprietary connector and cannot be found?

    Thanks!

    Why not just use the hdmi in and utilize a component to hdmi adapter? Cheap option if you can’t find the original cable

    Can you still record gameplay from PlayStation 3 using that adapter component to HDMI?
    Because PlayStation 3 have HDCP protection and without a splitter you can't record anything.

    HDCP only applies to the HDMI output of the PS3 console itself. YPbPr Component doesn't have HDCP. You can record the PS3 using a component to HDMI converter as the component signals don't have HDCP.

    I highly recommend using an HDMI splitter instead as you'll get the best image quality possible and they usually strip HDCP. A good one costs about the same as a component to HDMI converter so there's no point in dealing with analog video.

    And the PS3 component output isn't very pretty.
