Dish TV just installed some new receivers here yesterday and guess what...no coax output, just HDMI and the three RCA tv outlets (Red, Yellow & White). I still have a couple of old TV's that I would like to use the COAX input in the rear of the TV versus the front facing RCA 3 connections.
Does anyone know of a HDMI to COAX connector that will work?
Note that the Dish technician stated that the RCA output displays a better picture than COAX which was contrary to what I have been told previously.

Most here at VideoHelp agree with the Dish technician that RCA is a higher quality connection than coax.
At least one HDMI to coax converter exists: https://www.radioshack.com/products/radioshack-hdmi-to-coax-adapterIgnore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord
Thanks for that link. I was hoping that it would be a simple connector to connector thing but I see it has to be a converter.Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence -Carl Sagan
Connecting an RF modulator to the satellite receiver's composite video and stereo audio ports would also output an NTSC channel over coax.
However, connecting the three RCA tv outlets on the satellite receiver directly to the matching connections on the analog TV would be simpler, less expensive, and more reliable than the other options above.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord
