But why not play DVDs on the PC and see if the Dish receiver has composite outputs?
The HDMI input board on my TV died, the component inputs are used for DVD and Dish receiver. Before the board died I used a HDMI from my computer video card.
The computer video card has HDMI, DVI and VGA outputs, the DVI goes to my computer monitor. If necessary I can connect the monitor with VGA and use the DVI for the TV.
What is the least expensive way to connect a HDMI or DVI cable to the composite input on the TV? I realize the video quality using composite is not very good. This will be temporary until I can afford to fix the HDMI problem on the TV.
