Component/DVI connector?

my tv has 2 components and a DVI input. both components are taken up and I only have DVI left. My 360 comes with only component. Is there a cable where one end is female component and the other end male DVI?

I've seen some component to DVI converters but they costs around 100 bucks!

Any other suggestions for connecting my 360?

Is the tv input DVI-I or DVI-D?

I only ask, because I thought the 360 had a VGA output.

I had no idea there are 2 types of DVI, so not sure.
The 360 has composite outputs, but I don't think it has VGA outputs.

DVI-I will accept analog signal, DVI-D is digital only. It should tell you in the manual (you did keep that, right? )

Look here:

They are a reputable company. I've ordered a VGA to component adapter, an autosensing component video switcher as well as numerous other cables from them.
