You need the 2018 express+, an express or newer express + won't work with non-hdmi tv.

The Express + is out of stock everywhere.  Are there any other options for older TVs without HDMI?

Buy converter to change hdmi into composite(RCA), but do not just get a just a cable with different connectors on each end, it needs a box with circuitry to change the signal from one to another. Like these:

Make sure it can change from hmdi to rca, and not other way around.
