I have an Vizio HDTV in my exercise room which I use to watch an analog signal. My provider is Comcast and they have given me a small box to convert their digital signal to an analog signal. The connection from their box to my TV is a coaxial cable. I have verified that the coaxial input on the TV no longer works, but the HDMI inputs are OK. I could just buy a new TV for less than $200 on Black Friday, but it seems a waste to dispose of a working TV. Is there any cheap converter that will take the analog signal and convert it back to digital on HDMI?
Why not just get a different box from comcast that has hdmi outputs on it?
Those boxes are for providing a digital signal and cost $10 a month. I already have them on 3 different TVs in the house. This TV is just used to relieve boredom while exercising, so all I need is the base ~70 analog signals that Comcast provides.
Rather than pay $10 a month over the years it would be cheaper for me to buy one of the $150 TV sets on sale this Black Friday and just donate the old TV to Goodwill.
