Connect SNES to TV with HDMI Port

My wife and I recently decided to break out the old SNES system and connect it to our new smart TV. We ran into an issue though when we found it only had HDMI ports. The original SNES adapter has the 3RCA connectors. How the heck do you make that work?

I was happy to find out that there is an adapter you can purchase that will allow you to connect your SNES to an HDMI port n your TV. Here’s how we did it.

  1. First, you’ll need the old 3RCA cable that originally came with the SNES. If you don’t have this component, you can purchase one on Amazon.
  2. Seconds, you’ll need an RCA to HDMI converter that will convert the RCA composite connection adapter to an HDMI connection.
  3. Connect the old adapter to the SNES as you normally would. Then connect the old adapter to the RCA to HDMI converter.
  4. Plug the RCA to HDMI adapter into a wall power outlet.
  5. Connect the HDMI cable between the RCA to HDMI converter to the HDMI port on your TV, and you’re set to use your old Super Nintendo System on your new TV.

That’s it! The SNES will now work with our new HDMI TV.
