I have a camera base unit that has a single RCA video output that use to go to my TV input.
I now would like to route it through my receiver but would like to convert it to HDMI.

I know there are converters out there but really don't want to spend much and also wondering if I have to use all 3 (audio and video) connections for it to work.
The camera base does not have audio so not sure if I can just connect the (Yellow) video to a converter for HDMI out?

Thanks,
Debbie

you can get a converter for around $30 fron NewEgg or other retailer. Not having audio shouldn't be a problem just connect yellow video.
Good Luck,

Ideally would be to find a 3 port composite input to HDMI output switch box.

That way I can connect my 'Camera video', Wii and PS2 composite inputs to 1 HDMI output.

Thanks for your reply.
The first 1 you listed I just ordered along with this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Composite-Signal-Switch-cable-Clear/dp/B001AM1L6E/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1343937560&sr=8-4&keywords=composite+switch

So I would be able to connect all 3 devices to the switch and then out to the converter.
For $1.00 thought I'd try.

Thanks for all your help out there.

Debbie
