    Default Need help with HDMI converter into an old TV

    Basically I will be using a new blu-ray player on an old TV and need to convert the signal from HDMI.
    Which one of these will get the job done. I've arranged according to price.

    HDCVT HDMI To AV Convertor
    OEM HDMI to AV Converter
    HDCVT HDMI to AV Converter
    HDMI to AV Converter - White
    Baobab HDMI to AV Converter

    Is the best your TV has to offer Composite, because that will provide a terrible picture, don't expect to see an improvement over a regular DVD player. If your TV offers Component (red, green and blue inputs), that's what you want.

    Of the devices you listed, only two do what you're looking for, the others convert HDMI to Composite.

    This one is HDMI to Composite:

    Yeah it's ancient but all that is going at the moment...

    This one offers Composite and S-Video, if your TV has S-Video but no Component input, this is still only DVD quality but it will offer better colour rendition:
    Thanks, no S-Video and no component unfortunately, it only has the yellow, white and red inputs.
