I will upgrade in a couple of months to an HDTV but for now I have to use that old tv. I want to get the ROKU3 but may have to settle for ROKU2 for now.
If I got a ROKU3, Whats the minimum I would need to convert the HDMI output to RCA. I see a lot of different costs and options but don't know if what i need is a HDMI to RCA cord or an actual box to convert? Anyone know what would help translate that so the ROKU would work on a standard old TV?
In the end I may get a Roku2. I want to have access to all content for the time I actually do end up with an HDTV that can view 1080p content. What ROKU version is best for me or should I get a ROKU3 and find a converter for it.

Some are cheap and some aren't. Just because one has a hefty price tag doesn't mean it is the better one. Speaking from experience.
