Metra ethereal CS-CVHDM
Component video + stereo audio to HDMI converter
Our take on the Metra ethereal CS-CVHDM by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Remember the Analog!
Component video is becoming the forgotten high-def connection. As we've shifted from analog HD to digital HD, and now 4K, equipment makers have cut back on or eliminated component video connections on many A/V receivers and other gear. This audio/video adapter from Metra ethereal lets you connect your game console or other gear to your HDMI-equipped A/V receiver or TV.
The CS-CVHDM accepts video resolutions from 480i to 1080p. It takes that video signal and stereo RCA audio signals and converts them to HDMI-ready digital signals. The CS-CVHDM requires AC power to function, and includes an AC power adapter.
