How to connect HDMI cable from tv to vcr & dvd players that have no hdmi outlets?


Nov 18, 2017
I still have Panasonic vcr player & a dvd player being used with a new tv. TV has 2 HDMI outlets but the others have none! How do I make them work together? I am 75 yrs old; please help!
Does the TV have a composite video (1 yellow RCA jack) and audio (2 red/white RCA jacks) input? Check the TV manual.
If it does you may need an AV input selector to expand that to two inputs.
If it only has HDMI inputs you would need to an active AV to HDMI converter. A cable won't work.
Or get a new DVD with HDMI out and use the AV in for the VCR. Not much more and will get you a better picture than the old one on your new TV.
