So I’ve had my old N64 in my house for years and have been meaning to get back on to it for ages but just keep putting it off.

What sort of connection would I need to link it up to a smart tv with HDMI cables. I’m not technologically savvy and have seen conflicting ways to do it.

Any help much appreciated :)

    I would just connect just the red, white, and yellow on the back. I'm still using my NES also! I regret giving my N64 away :'( .

    Just did the same myself was pretty painless. What connections do you have with it? Did mine with the aerial connection and was as easy as just retuning the tv.

    Honestly Youtube would be the best option theres loads of vids out there.

    I’ve got an RF out adapter with the old style aerial connection. I had seen that was one way but you had to tune the 64 to AV or something?

    Yeah should be pretty straightforward then. iirc all i did was hook it all turn the power on then got to TV settings and re tune and it worked a charm.

    Would link you to the tutorial on YouTube but on phone atm, if you're struggling give youtube a try. Something along the lines of n64 to hd tv UK will give you loads of tutorials.
