    Hi there. So I recently got a hand-me-down HDTV, which doesn't have direct YPbPr or AV ports, but has headphone jack-like sockets for these connections instead. I know I need to buy particular cables for these, but can anyone direct me to recommendations?

    I'm not looking for HDMI converters, as those ports are already in use by modern systems. There is a scart port, but only the Sega Saturn can use that because of the shape of its own scart socket head (it's one of those off-to-the-side ones, whereas the PS2 and Wii ones are square and don't fit because the back of the tv blocks them from going in properly).

    Thanks in advance!

    This is what you need. Any brand will do, as it's just a passthrough cable.

    That looks perfect! What's it's exact name, and I take it there's one for YPbPr as well? :)

    Given the limitation, in the amount of signals that the 3.5mm end can carry (auxiliary), you won't find any Composite to aux. Only option is Component/RCA to aux.
    I found this in Amazon UK (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Female-Adapter-Ancable-6-Inch-Splitter/dp/B07SR1HH87) which I guess should work for you based on you profile country.

    Which TV model do you have? I’d be careful to make sure the way it’s split doesn't cause problems i.e. the composite and one of the components aren’t shared.

    In regards to scart, you could always get a multi-Scart adapter or a coupler so you can connect 2 cables together.

    Although I’d still go with component.

    It's a Blaupunkt 40/148Z-GB-11B-FGKU. Thanks for the advice, everyone. I'm thinking of just going back to my previous tv.
