Need Help With Xbox360 VGA to HDMI

I have an Xbox 360 with VGA output (no hdmi). I have a converter that converts Component to HDMI because my TV will only accept 1080p through HDMI.

I would like to convert VGA to Component then Component to HDMI with my recently purchased powered converter box to get 1080p movies through my HD-DVD add-on and upconvert SD DVD's to 1080p.

My games will display in 1080p fine. But, my understanding is that the HDCP only unlocks on VGA.

I know this is a long way around a problem that could be solved by getting an Xbox360 with an HDMI port, but, this is cheaper. Should it work?
