    My sister has just moved into a new house which has a dedicated cinema room.
    There is a projector fitted to the ceiling which has a composite video cable going through the ceiling which then comes out a hole in the bottom of the wall.
    The projector has a composite video connection.
    The problem is her home theatre system has component video connections which as far as i'm led to believe can't fit.
    She doesn't want to disturb the composite cables going through the wall so is there a way around this or will she have to buy an old style theatre system which has composite video connections?
    Ideally she'd like the composite video cable that comes through the wall to be plugged into maybe another cable that can then be plugged into the component connections in the back of the system.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Think you'll need to re-wire and changed the PJ (probably very old, thats why it was left behind?). Composite is poor PQ cable, component is much better (HD) but go with HDMI if you can. You should be able to connect everything into an AV receiver and output via composite but I'd not recomend it!

    Yeah wanted to avoid re-wiring and changing the projector at this moment in time. This is the first projector she's had so just wanted something simple just to get the taste of using and viewing one.
