How to Connect HDMI to RCA

By Joe Lewis

Recently manufactured video devices such as Blu-ray players and higher end DVD players sometimes only have HDMI output, as they are intended to function with high-definition televisions. Connecting these devices to older televisions with RCA inputs is possible, but at the price of audio and video quality.
