Does anyone know of a USB --> CoAx / S-Video converter?

I really want to output my PC to a good old fashioned CRT big screen I have, and all I want is a device that will mirror my main output on s-video or component or whatever for a low def device.

YES it will obviously have to down sample the output to like 1024X 768 or whatever - and text will be unreadable - but I don't care - its for video & youtube & playing MAME games.

Anyone have any ideas? - The only "converters" I can find cant handle an INPUT of 1080p :(

And i was really hoping SOMEWHERE someone had a nice simple USB device that just mirrors the screen instead of all sorts of signal converters.
