I'm assuming I could get a breakout cable, and a RF modulator to connect. Is there any known reason this wouldn't work?
I have a mini that is not in use at the moment, and an old 90's tv that only has a coax input (in the basement, only really used for tornado watch/warning & while folding laundry).
A VCR you don't use anymore that's new enough to have line inputs can take the red, white, and yellow, and send it out as analog channel 3 or 4.
That's how I'm connecting the HD sitting on the upright freezer to the analog SD television sitting on the refrigerator next to it in the kitchen.
And if I ever want to watch one of those old VCR tapes, like the final season of 24, I can do that while I'm washing dishes and peeling vegetables as well.
Also there were RF modulators made for gamers that will do the same thing.
Check your local Craigslist for either.
