    hi,

    I have an 80's portable tv, it has a 5 inch black and white crt screen.
    It's three frequency bands are VLF, VHF and UHF, it can receive those signals through it's telescopic antenna, It can also receive it through a connector for an external antenna, i believe it is like a 3.5mm audio jack (becouse it fits in there)

    My question is, How can i connect my PC, laptop or Raspberry Pi to this TV using HDMI?
    What do i need for this? do i need any special converters and/or cables?

    Hello,

    You will loose a lot of information during the conversion from HDMI to analog.
    HDMI is likely to have 1080 lines, as the analog TV has 525 or 625 lines depending on the standard.

    There are some HDMI to scart converters available on ebay:
    https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fr...rt.TRS0&_nkw=hdmi+to+scart+converter&_sacat=0

    From the scart you can use a modulator to go to the TV.
    But as said, you will loose a LOT of information.
