It's true! So I'm shopping for a new TV that I can still connect direct to my VCR via coax. I've had the Westinghouse 24" LED HDTV - purchased at MicroCenter Cambridge Mass - which I'm now using with my PC. I've gotten feedback from another retailer that larger TV's in the same Westinghouse line would also fit my situation - to a limit. Their 32" and 43" would work for me but their 50" would not, even though they all have ATSC/NTSC tuners. Something about the more recent, larger model being designed differently. I guess as the product evolves, some features get phased out. Fair enough.
I'm looking strictly at LED TV's listed on MicroCenter's site and would simply like to know - yes or no - if my VCR would function with the simple direct VCR-to-TV coax connection (no converter required) with any of the following TV's.
Philips 55PUL7552 55" Class (54.6" Diag.) 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV - Refurbished; HDR10; Game Mode SKU: 563692
Sansui S55VAUG 55" Class (56.4" Diag.) 4K Ultra HD Google TV; Built-In Google OS and Google Assistance; Vocal Control; Screencast Built-in SKU: 602813
Vizio V585-J01-R 58" Class (57.5" Diag.) 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV - Refurbished; V-Gaming Engine; Dolby Vision HDR; IQ Active SKU: 519629
Would any other categories of TVs - OLED, QLED etc - have any models 43" or more that would fit my situation?
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
**Edit. Just realized this is probably not in the right section. Sorry. First timer. Would a mod or other with authority kindly move this thread to a section covering product questions? TY!**
Do you happen to be near a Micro Center store? We could pass along your information to the store to verify what ports these specific items would have or our sales experts in store can assist with product recommendations like this.
Most of the older and smaller TV's still have the RCA ports for the VCR. The newer and higher spec ones will only have HDMI ports but you can use a RCA to HDMI digitizer/up-scaler to convert the RCA plugs to an HDMI. A couple examples are https://www.microcenter.com/product/469974/qvs-composite-female-to-hdmi-female-a-v-converter and https://www.microcenter.com/product/488939/kanexpro-composite-mini-din-4-pin-female-to-4k-hdmi-converter
