I'm pretty sick right now and was just getting ready to go to bed when someone knocked on the door and handed me a package:

Its my birthday present!

Inside, a plain unbranded box. China's very finest:

Inside that, a few things: a single page "manual", the converter unit itself, a custom breakout cable for component & audio input (eg from a DVD player) and the power supply with an awesome giant UK plug, egads.

Front and back sides of the converter unit:

This afternoon I'll go around to Dick Smith and grab a power converter so I can plug it in and then give it a test with the DVD player. If I get some time tonight and its not too cold I'll camp out in the garage and start trying to build some cables.
