Yamaha RX-V465: input hdmi, output component?

Hi,

I'm looking to have my hdmi-in signal output via both the HDMI and component outputs.

But, apparently you cannot output a hdmi source via the component output (or any other non-hdmi ouput, for that matter) with this unit.

But, maybe somebody has figured out a way, or hacked a firmware, or did something? Anyone in the know?

Many thanks!

No AV amp can convert HDMI to an alternative type of output. Doing so would breach the standards and HDCP requirements for HDMI.

There are HDMI to analogue convertors, the most notable of which is the HDfury. The HDfury can convert HDMI to component without breaching the HDCP DRM of HDMI.

If you wish to connect to a component input on one device while simultaneously outputting HDMI to another, you'll also need either an AV receiver with dual HDMI output or an HDMI splitter connected to an HDMI output of an AV receiver. One HDMI output would go to an HDMI input on one device while another feed would go to the HDfury. The HDfury would then facilitate non HDMI connections to analogue inputs on another device. Note that only Yamaha AV amps with dual HDMI outputs facilitate simultaneous use of both outputs.

But this is illegal in a lot of countries under the DMCA or equivalent laws , because it deliberately circumvents a copy protection system , as such , the HDfury is increasingly hard to get in a lot of countries.

Most interesting, thanks! So what's the best option for me?

I'm actually looking to output the signal of my Dreambox DM500hd to both my yamaha receiver and my DLP projector.

dm500hd --> hdmi --> Yamaha rx-v465 (hdmi input)
dm500hd --> SCART --> DLP projector (d-sub input)

Is the above setup the best I can do?

See the link I provided. It can be purchased in the UK.

But note that the only units legally available in the UK are units the give no analog output with HDCP protected content ....

See here ,

HDfury.com – HDCP, DMCA and us.

Theres a lot of rambling about fairness going on in this article , but the upshot of it is that to get their HDMI.org approval they stopped stripping away HDCP protection like they used to.

So , only unprotected content gives an analog output on newer legal units.

Question is, does the HDfury work as a hdmi splitter/switcher (or else I'm back to square one if it doesn't) and can it be had for under 100eur?

No, you need to use a splitter prior to the HDfury.

Amp HDMI out --> HDMI Splitter --> HDfury

An HDMI splitter will cost you less than £30 and the HDfury costs £130.

All clear, thanks a lot guys! :D

HDfury costs too much at this point so I'm going to be outputting analog signal from my dreambox. Can you confirm I should get a SCART->D-sub cable rather than SCART->s-video? Unfortunately the projectory only has those two inputs...
