RCA Cables Converter to HDMI

I have a VCR with RCA composite cables and a 4k HDTV. If I use a converter, will I fry or burn out my HDMI connection in my tv because it's a 4k tv? I believe the converter is good for 1080. I thank all who respond.

Should not happen.

If it does it's because the converter had a defect. While I've never heard of such an issue the fact you asked means you had a bad experience or are just doing the Chicken Little.

The other complaint you get is folk that put 480i composite RCA into ANY converter usually complain about poor picture quality. You can't add quality. And these were usually on sets under 30 inches where 4K sets are 40 and more inches AMPLIFYING the display issues.

Thanks for your input. I read some reviews on the EasyCel converter and two people said it fried their HDMI Port. Perhaps, I could ask them what the details were that caused it. I just bought a new sony 950g so I don't want any problems with my new tv. I think I shall take the chance and see. Thanks again.

There are always going to be failures. But there's more.

I hate to bring it up but some reviews are fake. Competitors will write bad reviews in order to taint the product.

If you feel uneasy about EasyCel, pick something else.
