We were looking at these primarily for an Internet video streaming

My cable box at home has a composite video out built in already (and I

If anybody buys one of these I'd be curious to see which devices they have
problems with.  They don't say whether they support HDCP, and if they did,
I don't know exactly how that would effect that particular situation.
