"Older TV's" were specifically mentioned as the marketing target. But apparently what very few people realize, is that HDMI cables have a very big problem in general .. and that is, they are usually very short! So, you can forget about connecting HDMI cables to TV's that are 25 feet or more away from the HDMI signal source, whether that signal source is a DVR, or a DVD player, Blue Ray player, or a cable box. But this product takes HDMI signals and outputs them on analog TV channel 3. What almost nobody knows, is that all TV's in the united states use the NTSC-M method of signal transfer. NTSC-M must be selected in the pop-up menu, or your picture will be terrible, flickering, and mostly without color! But what really makes this product outstanding, is that it will allow you to ideally adjust your picture for whatever TV you are trying to display it on, regardless whether that TV is brand new, or an antique from the 1960's!
The picture can be adjusted (independently), in Hsize (horizontal size), Vsize (vertical size), brightness, contrast, saturation (color level), hue (tint), and sharpness!
