Analog component HDTV?

Yeah, Brian's right: good luck with that.

I'm not, honestly, certain that there actually are cards that will grab
*consumer* analog component HDTV.

And as for pro, the window in which HDTV was moved around as component
analog was *very* short, in the grand scheme of things.  And at least
10 years ago.

What, pray tell, are you trying to accomplish, Justin?
