Hi guys, i made this account to ask this question. A family member recently bought a new TV and she wants it to work with her VCR and DVD combo player. Her TV has HDMI, USB 5V ANT IN and LAN and USB inputs, and the DVD VCR player has Yellow, red white RCA and green blue red component outputs. I got and RCA to HDMI converter on Amazon but the TV doesnt recognize the combo player as a device. Is there anything you guys suggest to try?
i attached some photos

Doesn't it show the feed to the DVR from the source first, then into the TV second? If so 75ohm plus RCA should work

Google this "hookup old vcr to modern tv". I didn't give a full answer because I didn't know your source. Remember that your Pioneer is an analog device so if you're using an antenna, you'll need a converter box.
EDIT: I meant Panasonic. I have a Pioneer combo.

in addition to the HDMI cable to the TV and the composite cables to the DVD, you need a USB cable from the converter box to the TV for a power source. If the Composite connectors don't work, plug the Yellow Video cable to the Video Out and the Red and White to the Audio Out of the DVD player to the Adapter. Make sure you change the input method on the TV to the HDMI port you are playing the DVD player on. Make sure the player is turned on.
