    Help for a Non-Technical Person: How to connect an Xbox One to a non-HDMI TV.


    Hello. As I have stated in my subject, I am not someone who has a lot of knowledge when it comes to hardware and technical stuff. I have an HDTV which does not for some reason support HDMI. I was planning on getting an Xbox One sometime soon, but, being
    a college kid and all, I didn't want to have to shell out another $300+ for a capable TV to go along with my $500+ purchase. I've done some research however, and found a few alternatives. An HDMI-to-DVI adapter can work, but obviously there won't be any sound
    output, and I'm not sure how to get around that. I've also found a few converter boxes which I've heard can get around this, but I've heard they aren't completely trustworthy, and cheaper ones compromise the quality of the TV. I've even been suggested to buy
    an HD monitor and just game on that. Without investing in a new TV, what would be the best solution?

    :)

    Personally I would upgrade my tv. But thats just me. Since you are looking for a cheap alternative I would go the monitor route until you can afford to get a new tv.

    Non-HDMI TV

    To the OP, you CAN. evilfangs is technically incorrect.

    Questions: 1.. Is your TV and HD tv with component input only? If so you need and HDMI to component adapter.

    2. Is it is standard definition do you have composite connections? If so you need an HDMI to composite adapter.

    available many places, I recommend www.monoprice.com

    Please note these may not provide the best picture but will work.

    As long as your TV has component inputs, yes. I picked up the HDFURY Gamer 2 Component and it works flawlessly with the Xbox One with my DirecTV receiver plugged into it. There were cheaper solutions out there, but they seemed to be hit or miss...

    No.

    You need a HD TV to play these next gen HD consoles.
