Customer wants to add AppleTV to a modulator that accepts 720p component video input. Is HDFury my only option or has anyone had success with anything that I can get quickly through distribution or Amazon?

ive used a dozen, cheap simple, converters from Amazon over the years. they don't last forever but have worked. Some seam to shift the pic to the left a little bit. That said, HDFury is the most pro option if the budget allows. All up to the customer.

Its been my experience that HDFury doesnt even pass the Copyright protection half the time.

Really? Not what I expected to hear since we've always been lead to believe the HDFury was the end all be all lol. Thats disappointed.

Have not ever had an issue with Apple TV not working MediaImage. Keep in mind though I have never put on on anything newer than the 3rd Gen. So, dont know on Apple TV 4, or 4k.

I decided to try this:

Worked like a champ. HDMI passthrough let me connect to local AVR. Component output fed old video distribution. I tried a few current movies and TV shows, all played.

I have used this at a couple of projects where we added AppleTV to component video switchers (crestron pvid) [Link: amazon.com]

I had to toggle the resolution button to find one that worked for all the different TV's. These systems still have 13" 4:3 TVs in bathrooms and kitchens.

I haven't seen the image shift issue mentioned in the above post but i have had them fail. Every year or two they failed and had to be replaced. Same with the few HDFuries i have installed.

Did you happen to come away from those replacements with information as to whether the firmware on the new ones was different from the firmware on the failing ones, and/or whether the firmware on the old ones could be updated?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
