Hello

I have a Tv (super old tv) that just works with analog cable, and I was thinking using a digital converter box for the tv and plug a HDMI fire stick and connect AV Converter in the tv converter box. But I don't know if it will work and I need some help. If is confusing I'm leaving some links for what I was thinking. Thank you in advance!

The 1byone converter box would be for over the air broadcast TV and as nothing to do with using a Firestick.
You would need two AV inputs on the TV to use it and the Firestick, which could require an active HDMI to AV converter like the one in the 2nd link.
You could get an AV input selector to expand the number of AV inputs of the TV.
The Roku Express+ streamer has an AV output so that might be an option that would not require converters.

Because my tv is so old I do not have a AV input, for that reason my solution is having a Digital Converter Box for Analog TV and use an antenna, but the area that I live I will not have to much channels for that I am looking for a solution to use the fire stick.

You can find a newer used TV for not much more than the cost of that HDMI to Composite device. Using that will give you a really bad looking image since the Firestick is designed for 1080 HD sets not old analog ones that are at 1/4 the resolution. I would forget the adapters and just look for a used 1080 TV.
