Connecting Your Digital Display Hardware Without HDMI

If you're working with an older AV system that doesn't have an HDMI input then you will most likely need to use an adaptor. Connecting through component is the most common type of input on AV systems. Look for component inputs on your TV. These connections have a row of five differently-colored inputs(green, blue, and red for video, white and red for audio). If you have more than one set of component inputs, it's the first set that generally works with standard AV cables.

To connect your device to the component inputs you will need to purchase an HMDI to component adaptor along with cables. We recommend using a converter like the one pictured here. Here's a great example of cables here.
