PS4 Component HD

10 replies 899 views Edited Jun 12, 2013

I have to ask this question. If the PS4 only has an HDMI port why cant the PS4 push component video out of the HDMI port? All they would have to make is a cable with an HDMI on one end and the component out on the other. Slap it with the Sony label and bam, you get $29.99 in extra profit for the cheapos in the room. (myself included)

 

I realy dont want to get rid of my 60 inch TV.

Because HDMI is a digital signal and component is analog.

But some Bluray players can push the component signal through an HDMI port if I remember correctly.

Technology keeps moving forward, and as it does it leaves old technology behind.

A  mutlti tap one  with more than or at least 3 hmdi  slots, or get a  accell a135-006b.. Both are are cheap in tday day maket.. staples stores  is your best best  or ebay.

 

But before you do anything  find out they work with selected tv and ps4/ps3.. they should, but  best to  check  1st ..

 

 

Happy gaming in your future
