    I don't understand why you need an adaptor. If your DVD player don't have component, you need a new DVD player, one with Progressive scan. I would be surprised if your LCD didn't offer a composite input. My DLP offers 3 composite, 2 component and 1 HDMI. My Sony HD tube set also offers an array of video inputs.

    Even if they did make an adaptor, which I don't think they do, composite and S-video are still analog video and 480i at best. Component is 480p and higher. I've been told component video is a digital video signal and if that's true an adaptor would be very expensive because it would have to include some kind of D to A or A to D conversion. If one was made though, ask Radio Shack, if they don't carry it, it probably don't exist.
