Connect XU4 to CRT TV

Did a search and not finding info I wish to find. How would someone connect their XU4 to a CRT TV via RCA connections?

There are some converters from HDMI to RCA, I never tried. :)

be very carefull when connecting a odroid or any device up to a CRT screen..i am taking a guess but i can bet if it only has composite input then it`s most likely to be 20 odd years old..

CRT screen when old develop faults of a very dangerous nature..i wont go into specific`s but can put very high voltages down through the set in many ways...electrically ..

how ever if you still wish to go ahed what you need is a hdmi to video adapter unit.. just do a web search..."buy an hdmi to composite converter"..that should throw quite some results...

Yeah, I was kind of hoping there was a hat or something possibly. I have seen a lot of people reviewing the various converter options out there and they all say they are junk. Either audio issues or else the picture is crappy.

I am using my XU4 for retrogaming so had been hoping that I could do something like you can with Raspberry boards via GPIO, etc. Picture quality can be amazing for retrogaming with composite.
