I purchased a new Sony BluRay DVD player with built-in wif-fi. However, the only outputs were one HDMI and one coaxial (the kind that connects like an RCA, not the screw-on type used for cable boxes). My HDTV is older and has no HDMI or coaxial inputs. This cable met my needs perfectly. Just beware that this only transmits the video signal only. I separately purchased the correct coaxial cable along with a coaxial-to-rca converter for audio.
