There's not even a free ride when it comes to BAD converting right now. I have searched high and low for 'cheap' converters and they just aren't on the market in the USA. Canada has access to some, but from there, you are left with the HDFury products which may prove to work or not work for you. While they are very good, they are not infallible.
I would consider a new TV to make more sense, and to limit the old TV to sources with component video output, which is available on many devices, or can be purchased through some used gear that still works very well.
