Default HDMI to COAX

I need to connect a HDMI line to an older TV with only coax. Is there an inexpensive method to do this? Thanks

If the older TV only has a coaxial input (RF or off air TV) then no, it would cost a bit, to go from an HDMI signal to a RF signal. (TV channels 2 to 68)

If the old TV only has an RF input and you want to watch off air TV then a digital to analog convert box can be used, this will pick up the newer digital off air TV signals and convert then to the old style analog signals.

They also make an HDMI to analog box, this will take some HDMI signals and convert them to analog, however some only take off air signals from a TV antenna, you have to be careful on what one to get, if you trying to run a DVR that only has an HDMI output then some of the converter boxes may not work.
