Can I use a regular HDMI To RCA Converter to use a ChromeCast with my old TV that has the "Yellow, Red, White" Connectors?
Thanks!

I've been trying this out for a few days. At first I had a couple issues with the chromecast rebooting every few minutes, but after doing a factory rest it seems fine now. I've got it hooked up to an old stereo system (and monitor) replacing an Airport Express I used to stream from my Ipod. Got to say I like the chromecast a lot better, doesn't have as many features but was much easier to set up and does what I want (Google Play Music and Youtube) perfectly.

what kind of converter are you using? The HDMI to RCA has to be powered right? (not just a passive adapter)

It should work well. I got an HDMI to composite converter off of Amazon and Chromecast works fine

I don't have one yet. That's why I'm asking. Any suggestions?

I can't link yet (under 10 posts) but you can search amazon for:

ViewHD Universal HDMI to Composite / AV Video Converter, Support PAL / NTSC Standard TVs

Just make sure you have a 5V 1A usb charger for it to work properly. I used an apple wall usb charger.
