Default Mounted TV with component cables on back of TV problem

Hello.

I just mounted my new 47 inch LG LW6500 using a low profile mount. The problem i'm having is, while the HDMI and USB ports are on the side, the RCA port is on the back. There's no room for the component cables (for my Wii) to be plugged in. this was never an issue as my previous TV had all the ports at the bottom of the TV.

What options do i have?

is there some type of adapter that allows HDMI to transfer to component?

i.e. i plug an HDMI cable in one of the free ports on tv, then plug that into the adapter and then plug the component cables into the other end of the adapter.

The cables are the ones that allow for 480p (blue, green etc)

This will allow you to eliminate the component video cable all together and just use HDMI.

Or just get 3 of these for $5 a pop that will angle the component cable down and should allow you enough room, but can't say for sure without seeing it myself.
