If there are, I've never seen one.

There are some s-video to HDMI solutions out there (usually for
noticably more than $20), but I've never seen a converter for going
the other way.

VGA to S-video converters are more common, but still, you'd be better
off selecting a front end system that has s-video out natively if
that's what you want.

Note also that HDMI doesn't imply HD.  It supports HD, but you can
watch SD content over an HDMI cable.
