We have a small TV in our kitchen that works off a signal sent over a wireless AV extender set-up from a Sky box in another room. Last night the eight year old 22” died and we are looking to replace it with a new one.

Most of the TV’s we are looking at have Component In (plus other input options) but do not have Composite In. However the AV extender receiver, which plugs into the TV, has only Composite output with standard RCA plugs. I understand that Composite and Component are totally different systems. Is there any way I might be able to get the AV signal into the new TV i.e. is there any sort of adaptor or other approach that we might be able to use?

Will be grateful for comments and advice.

Y (luminance) input is used on some TVs as composite video, i.e., the input is used for two purposes.
