What are the TV specs required for Stream

Joining in

Can I use stream with an old TV (pre 2013). Is HDMI all that's needed? 

Are there specs anywhere online?

Based on web search results, you can connect a device with HDMI on an older TV by using an HDMI to RCA converter. Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the device and the other end into the converter. Then, take the RCA cables from the opposite end of the converter and plug them into your TV. From here, be sure to select the RCA input source in your TV’s settings
