I don't know where you are getting these ideas.
Already covered twice, but 250 does not have component input. You confused component and composite. 250 has composite.
The first poster wanted HD recording. The 250 is not an HD capture device. All you need to do is take a look at their short list of supported resolutions. Elgato does not offer an HD component capture device.
Component does not always mean HD. It shouldn't even be assumed. If the product page does not specifically say HD, then it probably is not.
