I currently have one of these in use to convert composite/component video from my older game consoles to HDMI and it does exactly what you want. This converter works as you'd expect and the scaling appears to be decent enough that my games look the same on my modern TV as I remember them doing on old TVs back when. No comments on the audio conversion as that is split to my receiver, so I'm using this unit for video only, but that side of it works well. I deducted a star (though that'd really only maybe be 1/2 if I could do partial stars) for two minor gripes; the LED on the front (labeled "LED". Duh.) is STUPID bright. If you keep the Blackbird in a cabinet, no big deal, but if it's out where you can use the remote on it, you're going to want to cover that up with something (see the attached pictures. The brightness might be a bit exaggerated by lens flare, but if you keep the unit anywhere near your line of sight, you WILL notice). Gripe #2 is that you have to let the converter "boot" completely before you fire up whatever is plugged into it, otherwise it won't detect an input signal and you have to cycle the power on both it and the source unit to get it to work. Other than that, the thing works great and I would highly recommend it.
