Old Red-White-Yellow Analog Signal Converted to HDMI Digital Signal in a Minute!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tmvel HDMI2RCACVS 3 RCA Composite Video AV to Mini HDMI Converter for TV/PC/PS3/Blue-Ray DVD (Electronics)
I bought this Vizio brand flat screen Smart TV that is great. However, going with the latest technology they had more HDMI connection slots in the back than old analog "jacks". After using the traditional jacks, I still had a DVD Player, a VCR, and a Nintendo Wii console that all had Red-White/Gray-Yellow video output jacks that needed to work somehow. Well, this little box did it for me; it arrived on time, worked when I plugged it into a wall outlet and connected the Red-White-Yellow jacks into the "Input" slots and plugged the HDMI end to the "output" slow and then onto one of the empty HDMI slots in the back of the Vizio Smart TV. Voilà! I had the Harry Potter DVD showing on the DVD player for my daughter or when I unplugged the DVD jacks and plug in the VHS Tape Player jacks, the Wizard of Oz on the old tape was showing in great detail for my son or more importantly, when I plugged in the jacks for the Wii Console, my golf game was on the Pebble Beach where I still can't hit any good! In short, I say it is a great product for the price and I say it is great for rendering that trip to local Radio Shack for several cables/adapters that may or may not work unnecessary. This little box solved it for me. I now think that I may buy two more to avoid switching the jacks between 3 different legacy players I have!!

I had the same problem , not enough of the old style inputs on a newer TV. Instead of switching cables, I ordered a Philips No. SWS2325H/4 way manual HD audio/video selector switch from Amazon.com, that has 4 inputs and one output. Run the output through the HDMI converter and all you have to do is push the appropriate button.

Why buy more, use an analog switch box for all the devices then to the TV
