Is there such thing as a converter for HDMI to an old tv that only has the yellow and white on the back?

Do I just grab the cord with all three and ignore the red, or do I smash the TV in a rage and purchase one that doesn't belong in a museum?

Will Indiana Jones show up demanding it be places in a museum?

Tvs are cheap, probably cheaper in $/time to just get a cheap new one.

Red & white are both audio channels. Yellow is video. So long as you've got yellow and another one, you're good.

Although what the media your viewing will look like... I guess terrible

Convert HDMI to an old TV? Is this a serious question? Only if you are some kinda of tech nostalgia nerd and if you were you, would not be asking these questions, we would be asking you.

I just saved you time and your eyes from getting cancer. Buy a new TV!

i can confirm what Pillz said, ignore red & should be fine... i still have a tiny old tv w/ yellow/white inputs i use occasionally for console video games or just for portability

Wow. A mono sound tv?

Do you have to tune it with a dial?

This bring back memories, back in the days when dial ups were still unusual, me and the downstairs neighbors son were friends, we created a two way ”LAN” via a coax cable through the window :) we communicated by writting things in notepad and saving. Those were simple times :,)

Guy upstairs was trying to pawn off his old tv so I figured I'd see if it was at all useful. Couldn't remember enough of the old tech to know if the red mattered.

yes.



I'd throw it out but I know a single mother who's kid could use a tv and dvd player
