Do I need a converter to attach roku to my hdmi jacks?
I have an older tv that has hdmi jacks that are rca plugs, ie the colored single pronged hole. It does not have the many-pinned attachment port. Will the roku stick that I have ordered come with the appropriate connectors? Or will I need to purchase a converter? If so, what is the exact type of converter I need. I viewed something on amazon that was 30 bucks and before I buy this I want to make sure that it is the correct product and whether I even need to buy one.
Re: Do I need a converter to attach roku to my hdmi jacks?
Before HDMI, there were composite (3 connectors) and component (5 connectors) video connections. I don’t think any current model of Roku comes with anything to support those. There used to be a specific Roku model that was intended for old composite TVs but I think that has been discontinued.
