I have been using one of these Portta convertors. I'd say it's 99% great. The signal does drop and come back maybe once every few hours for some reason. It is so rare it doesn't matter but it does happen. https://www.amazon.com/Portta-N3CVRHP-Component-Converter-support/dp/B003VJ9RP6/ref=sr_1_17?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1536686721&sr=1-17&keywords=hdmi+component+converter Unfortunately that HD Link cable above doesn't support output of Dolby Digital or DTS.. The Porrta converter allows me to keep using optical.
