I have a HDMI cable to RCA yellow/white/red plugs on a TV's LINE 1 input no picture.

When I use my HDMI output with an HDMI cable to a HDMI TV, the laptop display goes directly to the screen.

You want the tv to output to your computer over HDMI. That isn't possible. It may however be possible to buy a tuner card that would take the signal directly and put through a usb port on your laptop. You would have to disconnect the input to the TV to do that.

No, I wanted my LAPTOP to play on a non-digital TV. Can the HDMI output from the laptop go to a "conversion" box of some type and then out via RCA cables to my older TVs?

Thanks
