Sony KT-series Plasma TV and Roku Express??

I have a 2004 Sony Plasma TV.   I have ordered both a VGA to HDMI and an RCA to HDMI converter to try with a Roku Express.

Am I headed in the right direction?

Which converter would be best for this old plasma TV?

Thanks!

Re: Sony KT-series Plasma TV and Roku Express??

First, make sure you ordered the right kind of converter.  You want HDMI input to VGA ouput or HDMI input to RCA outputThere are converters that go the other way around.  HDMI to VGA should theoretically give you a better picture if it supports HDCP (copy protection).  If it doesn't it may not work at all or may only work at lower resolutions.
