Hey Don,

I am not overly familiar with Shaws equipment however changing a coax connection into a component connection isn't possible as far as I've been able to find.  There are devices that can convert coax into composite (RCA) connections, and even HDMI (through a VGA to HDMI conversion adapter) but that is all.  Because coax does not transmit an HD signal, to change it to an HD connection type requires up converting and thus a more complicated (and from what I have found more expensive) type of converter.
