How to Convert HDMI to Composite Cable

HDMI is a digital interface that transmits both audio and video signals over one cable. The technology simplifies the connection between TVs, DVD players, receivers and video monitors. While HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, it is also capable of handling standard and enhanced signals. If one of your devices supports only HDMI and your TV only supports a standard composite connection, use an adapter to convert the signal.
