Converting HDMI to Component Using a Converter Box

Do have an older monitor or television without HDMI inputs? Want to hook up more modern devices like a DVD player, game console or streaming device? Then an HDMI converter box is what you will need. An HDMI converter box will take any HDMI signal and change it into a component-level signal. These component-level signals can then be plugged into an older TV, monitor, or projector to display the signal. In some cases, you may have a newer TV and the HDMI inputs are no longer working due to an electoral storm or surge. These boxes are an excellent way to salvage a damaged television.

Whistle GO Explore GPS Dog Tracker Review

Last updated: Wednesday, May 19, 2021We recently adopted a 1 year and a half old dog from a shelter. We knew when we got him he was a shy dog and was not properly socialized. We gave him a month to adjust to his new surroundings. Then after about four months of walking our dog in our neighborhood, I decided to try a new place. I took him to a quiet cemetery by our local reservoir. Soon into our walk, I tripped. It spooked the dog, and his leash slipped out of my hand. He took off into the woods like a bolt of lightning. We spend four days trying to get him back. Ultimately it took the help of the local neighborhood and wonderful rescue organization to trap him to get him back. It was a terrible ordeal. So, after all of [...]

  1. I have an old school Nintendo and I am trying to find the correct adapters to connect it to either my TV or to my projector… Will u please help???

    • The old Nintendos have RCA outputs. One for video and one for audio. Most TVs have inputs for RCA video and audio. If yours does not, you can use an RCA to HDMI adapter. This will allow you to plug your Nintendo into the HDMI port of your TV or projector. Here is a link to one: RCA TO HDMI adapter
