The analog component signal is initially captured at a lower resolution
(640x480). It is not captured at "high definition" resolution. That's why
it's so cheap.
How? Maybe using one of the chips that every HD cable/sat box has that
downsamples/filters from the component HD analog output to the composite SD
analog output. Those must be pretty cheap. Hook that to a commodity SD MPEG2
encoder and there's your SlingboxPRO.
