Connecting DVD to old TV?

Hello,

I have a very old Nordmende TV (aged about 20 years) and I was wondering if there was any way in hell I would be be able to connect my DVD to it using some sort of adapter or whatnot?

This is my TV...




Thanks in advance

You need an RF modulator, available just about anywhere, including Wal-Mart and Best Buy.

Just be aware that most of those will trigger Macrovision copy protection problems.

I couldn't use my VCR and had to get an RF modulator from Radio Shack which works fine.
