3rd Party Replacement for TV Box and TV Adapter

 

Can someone recommend a 3rd party TV box (don't need DVR) for a digital TV and a TV adapter for an old analog TV?  Comcast support indicates I need to get an adapter that can download their Smart TV app.).  Anyone have success with this.

A Roku but not for an analog. For that you’ll need an hdmi to rca adapter

Thanks, will check out Roku for the digital TV.  Any suggestion for the analog TV?

Not sure an RCA adapter will allow me to bring in the Comcast signal.

You hook up the Roku via hdmi to the Hdmi to rca adapter. No guarantees but you asked for ideas. Another idea is getting rid of the old analog tv

RCA adaptor has nothing to do with a Comcast signal

Thanks.  Picked up a Roku-Express for 2nd TV.  Works well.  Will probably toss the analog 3rd TV (converter is too expensive vs. just getting a cheap digital set).
