    Fun episode!

    Are there any advantages of using your K World system to using a cable like http://tinyurl.com/29tohzu ? I use that type of cable to connect to mine and that works well (plus it does it in HD – I assume your solution doesn’t as it uses the composite cables).

    Great inspiration. Off to take my “before” picture.

    @Matt – no advantage with he KWorld system. I just happened to have the KWorld adapter sitting around. If I was buying new, I would probably go with your system.
