    Older HDtv without HDMI port

    I'm having a real challenge setting up my chromecast, as my 2002 TV doesn't have an HDMI port. However, I do have a DirecTV receiver hooked up. I plugged into that HDMI port, but can't find the setup on the TV.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    As far as I know, any DirecTV HD receiver with HDMI port only has HDMI output, not input so plugging the Chromecast into a DirecTV HDMI port won't accomplish anything. If your HDTV has DVI input and you also have an AVR with HDMI input/output, you could connect the Chromecast to the AVR and use an HDMI>DVI cable to connect the AVR to the HDTV. If the display only has component video input, an HDMI to component video/composite audio converter might work but I sure wouldn't mess with that to use Chromecast.

    You might want to hold on to the Chromecast until you have an HDTV that it is designed to work with.

    An HDFury would work.

    You need a HDMI TV or Monitor. DVI with a HDMI adapter would work for passing thru the video but DVI has no audio support. If you already own a HDMI supported receiver then plug the dongle into the receiver before running the signal to your TV to get better quality sound then use the HDMI-DVI adapter.

    On my desk setup I just upgraded my monitor to one that supports HDMI and one that has an 3.5 headphone jack output so I don't have to use crappy internal speakers to play the sound from.
