your tv or its cables are not HD


your tv or its cables are not HD

I have a DirecTV HD recorder and am using the HD output to feed a couple of HD TVs. I am also using the Composite output of the receiver to feed a couple of SD TVs thru coax cables. Currently, I am using a Composite to RF modulator to do that. And that works fine, until I get an HD DirecTV menu on the screen and then I get the dreaded "Your TV or Cables are not HD" message. It is my understanding that using Component, instead of Composite, output will resolve that.

My questions: Is anybody using a Component to Coax RF modulated converter? What brand/model?

If not, Can I use the Monoprice 7114 (referenced here in the forums) Component to Composite converter and then feed my existing Composite to Coax RF modulator? Is anybody doing that?

Yes, you can use a component to composite video converter to feed your RF modulator
