I was under the impression there was some way to make this work. Is it possible, or was I mistaken?
Right now, I play my PS3 on my PC monitor through HDMI (Samsung 2494HM monitor). I switch between my PC and PS3 display by switching from HDMI display to Digital (DVI). My monitor also has an analogue input which I have never used, appears to be RGB. I don't care about 1080p, but I would like to be able to capture screenshots and video. I do of course still have my PS3 analog-component cable.
Here's an MS Paint drawing of my situation. It's not drawn here, but I get audio through earbuds coming out of the 'Audio Out' port from my monitor.
So, what are my options, if any?
My main question: Can I use a component video (YPbPr) to HDMI converter like this one:

on my PS3? Or is there some HDCP-compliance issue that will prevent that from working? Basically, would this setup work?:
Any help would be appreciated. Especially any PS3 users who have used a component video-to-HDMI converter, if the HDCP compliance or whatever messes it up or not (I hear it's different for PS3 than X360, so please only those with experience using one with PS3 respond).
