Old tv - no HDMI Port

Hello - My tv is very old and does not have an HDMI port.  It only has female cables that are red, white, green & blue.  I bought a HDMI to component cord but it does not work. What ROKU should I purchase and how do I get it to work? The TV is in my fridge so I can't buy a new tv.

Re: Old tv - no HDMI Port

Did you just get a simple cable that has an HDMI connector on one end and round colored connectors on the other?  If so, that won't work.  You need a converter, not a cable.  It should be a small box.  Something like this.  Note that I can't vouch for that particular box, but that's the kind of thing you're looking for.

To answer your question, the last Roku that had composite outputs (not component; there was never a Roku with component outputs) was the 2018 Express+.  It's not available anymore.
