I have a very old TV that only has the three colored (yellow, white, red) input on it, and the other one is a coax cable connection which connects the cable box to the TV, now the question is HDMI? I'm wanting to hook up the ps4 but it's HDMI cable only, does anyone know if I can hook it up through the cable box in any way, as it has HDMI cable input, and if not, any suggestions on how I can connect it differently
 
You can't connect anything to your cable box since it has no inputs other than for the cable feed. All the other connections are outputs.
You will need to get an active converter to change HDMI to AV and an AV input selector to add an additional input to the TV. Without the switch you would have to manually switch the cables from your cable box and console.
