I'm running a bit outdated home theater that only has optical video/S video/RCA video inputs. I'm looking for a converter box that will allow me to stream HDMI to my home theater receiver that will provide both audio and video. Any know of such a beast?
 
The optical connection is not video but audio only.
No sure what you mean by stream?
You can get an HDMI to AV converter.

If you have an HD TV the picture quality will suffer greatly.
I would suggest you connect all your sources to the TV with HDMI and connect the optical out of the TV to the HT. You may have to turn the optical output on, the TV speaker off, and change the output type in the TV menu to get it to work. No reason to run the video through the receiver.
If your TV doesn't have an audio output you can use an HDMI input selector with audio extraction to provide one.

Trying to route modern video through old s-video, composite is like trying to jam of family of 8 into a japanese compact and unecessary.

Connect video directly to TV and allow old receiver to handle audio only. Problem solved.
