HDTV doesn't have component inputs - SOL?

I recently bought one of those refurbished xbox's for 99 dollars, little did i know they did not come with an HDMI slot because it was a 1st-Gen Refurbish. So my HDTV only has composite inputs, and supports 1080p HD through HDMI inputs, but seeing as I can't run HDMI out of my xbox, i cannot achieve HD because i would need a TV that has component inputs, correct? So am I SOL with this? Would i have to purchase one of those 40 dollar converters?

 

Any information would be appreciated.

The only solution would be to buy one of those Component to HDMI which converts the signal to HDMI so you can use it on your HDTV
You might find a cheaper one in a computer store or something but i think the Xbox one has gold jacks and port for better conductivity but a regular one works as well

Did this solve your problem?

They're essentially the second generation (Falcon) without HDMI. They're still not particularly reliable.[quote]So my HDTV only has composite inputs, and supports 1080p HD through HDMI inputs,[/quote]That seems odd. What is the exact model number of the TV?

Monoprice has a couple. I'd be wary of using a box like that, though.

It will not do what he wants.
