    I was recently given a 40 inch Magnavox 1080p TV from someone who is looking to replace the tv with a 4k model. Problem is the television has no composite inputs. This is an issue as I have an original xbox and wii I still use.

    My question is whether or not most modern 1080p television's still have composite inputs. Thanks.

    PS: I'm really not impressed by the sound quality of the Magnavox. My Sony 720p 2008 model has much better sound quality than this Magnavox which was produced about two years ago. Are Sony's known for particularly good sound quality?

    Maybe the green plug of the component interface supports composite. That's the case with my and my parents' TV.
    If it's unsupported on your TV you could get a composite to HDMI converter

    You need to get Composite to HDMI and a soundbar.

    Some modern day TV's still have composite in them. The availability of co posite might vary where you live. Here where I live, modern day HDTVs still have conposite since many cable box manufacturers use them and there are very few affordable devices here that use HDMI ports.

    As Courtney mentioned- take a look at that green plug on your Component input jack. A number of TVs these days utilize it as an AV jack for Composite instead of having a completely separate AV input. I know mine does.
