I received my Monoprice item#7114 component to composite/S-video converter yesterday. You should be aware that you can not simultaneously use both the composite and S-video outputs of this device. Instead, there is a switch to select one or the other.
I was previously using both the composite and S-video outputs of my HR-20 (in addition to the HDMI output). The composite output was run to an RF modulator for the nearby kitchen TV and the S-video output went to the Slingbox.
I could have split the composite video output from the converter, but I was not happy with the video quality from the Slingbox using the composite video input.
So I additionally had to order from Monoprice an item #1124 S-video 2-way splitter (MDIN4M/MDIN4F X2). This item is not available from Radio Shack. Be sure an order this item when you order your converter, if these facts apply to you.
