    I bought a Slingbox AV and I didn't really think before I bought it, but it doesn't have a standard CATV connection - it only has component input.

    Anyone know if there is any kind of converter available to hook my standard cable up to and convert it to component output?

    not really....the slingbox is made to hookup to a satellite/cable box to stream content. You need one of those boxes to use the slingbox.

    If I get a cable box/DVR box, will it work without having an upgraded cable plan?

    Yeah, but most likely you in order to get a cable box of some sort you'll need to upgrade your plan.
