Older Tv to Hook up... no HMDI hook up

I have several tvs at camp, but they are older, like fifteen or so years old, just have AVI hook up (the three wired connections for like a DVD player) and the cable hook up. I have been told that I am able to buy a device to still get Roku, is this true, and if so what do I exactly need?

Re: Older Tv to Hook up... no HMDI hook up

@Ello2022, I can't believe you of all people would recommend a $149 Express from several years ago.  I got two of them for $10 each when Roku stopped producing them.

@Brittlane89, there are many HDMI to RCA converters out there.  Just make sure it goes from HDMI to RCA.  Some go the other way and some go both ways.  Also, the ones that are just a cable don't work.  It has to be a box and they generally have mixed results.  You really might want to look into investing in a new TV rather than cobbling together something that may not produce the best results.

@renojim  It’s an option. I gave him 2 options. With links so he can decide for himself. It’s for a camp so who knows the budget
