The Roku Express+ (model 3910) has analog outputs, so no additional equipment required. But if you want to use an Ultra (say you want a wired network connection), then yes an HDMI-composite converter will be required. Many people have done this, while others have had problems. I can't offer a specific brand/model that is known to work. The one problem you might have is if your TV isn't widescreen. Only the Roku players with analog outputs have a 4:3 display setting, so the converter has to adjust for it. That might make a quality converter rather expensive.
