About the Metra Helios CS-HDMAV
Use an HDMI source with an older TV
This scenario might sound familiar: you have an older TV that doesn't have any HDMI inputs, but you want to connect a high-definition source like an Apple TV, Blu-ray player, or cable box. If that's the case, consider using the Metra CS-HDMAV. It takes an incoming HDMI input, and converts it to composite video and RCA stereo audio. This lets you use the yellow (video) and red and white (stereo audio) inputs on your old-school TV to watch an HDMI source.
