Default PS3 HDMI to Component

I don't have an HDMI or VGA TV so I was wondering if it was possible to trick the PS3 if I had an HDMI compatible Audio receiver. Output with HDMI into the receiver and than use a component cable to connect the receiver to my TV.
Thanks in advance.

Why not just get the component cable for the PS3?

But to answer your question, no you can't transcode HDMI to component.

HDMI is encrypted with HDCP copy protection. It cannot be converted to analog Component Video.

But you can convert HDMI to DVI (both digital).

Only if the DVI connection on the display is HDCP-compliant. Not all DVI devices are.
