I just purchased a new house and the previous owners left an old rear projection tv (Mitsubishi WS 55413). It has a component video input and dvi input. If I get an hdmi to dvi adapter with I run into any issues with hdcp handshake not working?

According to this site: http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/history/topic/156893-1.html you're good to go with an adapter.

My old Toshiba ran fine with a DVI/HDMI adapter. I would even have sent you the adapter but I passed it on to the friend I gave the TV to.

Thanks guys! I just ordered a HDMI to DVI cable from Amazon.com for less than $10. I'm sure that everything will work fine from the link and what you guys have said.
