Want to stream videos (and audio, of course) from my iPhone 5 to my TV, but I only have an old SDTV. Thinking of buying these:

Apple TV: http://www.amazon.com/Apple-MD199LL-A-TV/dp/B007I5JT4S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1399145871&sr=8-1&keywords=apple+tv

HDMI2AV Converter: http://www.amazon.com/Mini-White-Composite-Converter-Blue-ray/dp/B009CL8NH0/?tag=cz45bkl-20

Would this work?

Phone to Apple TV, HDMI from Apple TV to converter, A/V cables from converter to TV.

To be honest I just want my iPhone 5 video and audio on my TV. E.g., want to watch youtube movies on my TV from my Iphone 5.

Help?

I bought that same exact converter. Haven't tried it yet. Should work though.

Then it would be $300+... And you can't get a good one/good size for $200.

It would be much easier to buy a Roku instead, and use that as your media player instead of endless adapters to convert HDMI to poverty. Here's a $30 Refurbished Roku that has analog video and HDMI if you ever decide to upgrade your TV:
