What you are after is an RF modulator not an RF converter.

If you enter that in the search there are a few different units available. LM3878 is the only unit worth buying if you're wanting to send video around the house and mix it in with an existing RF signal.

Thanks for that! Have used an old VCR for about 10 years – works fine but anytime the power flicks off have to reset it. For a front door cam piped round the house TV’s -

DSE used to sell one, but it was just a crappy one like in a VCR - you can get that from oatley electronics if you have an easy source of 5 volts and dont mind soldering

Just be aware they only tune between about ch 27 and 38 which is completly full in auckland and some other areas.
