Just bought HD tv and have the Tivo connected thought RCA cables (no hdmi on Tivo box) to tv-works fine. My DVD Player does not have an HDMI output-I bought a RGB component cable with an HDMI connector at the end-connected it-when I switched the input on the TV to that HDMI connection, I got a NO SIGNAL message on the TV. Do I need some type of converter for this connection? I do not have HD Cable at this time.

Thank you.
That cable you got is useless. You will need a component video to HDMI converter if your new TV does not have a component video input. Given what these cost it makes more sense just to get a Bluray which will have HDMI.
