I think it’s kinda obvious.

Why on earth would you want to do such a thing?

Besides, I don’t think it’s possible.

@Axemusica I have my reasons.

I know it’s possible, but I’m bad with electronics.

@Draconess25 well, I guess you could dumb down the resolution? I dunno, I never thought of or even wanted to try doing so. So the idea sounds absurd to me, even if I didn’t have an HD signal.

@Axemusica Thanks. I guess that should work for now….

Run the signal through an old VCR
Edit: Come to think of that, if you could get it to the VCR (in S-Video, or Composite) you could get it directly to the TV for a Standard-Def. quality picture.
So you just need to play whatever you want to be SD from a source that can output S-video or composite (Not component, I think that can do HD)

Most HDTV are “SMART” they read the input as HD through the HDMI cable.

@Tropical_Willie Eh? I don’t get it….

@Draconess25 what @Tropical_Willie means is that, these smart TV’s automatically adjust by determining what type of signal it is receiving, via your cable provider.

@Axemusica

Some’en like that. The HDTV knows that the input is HD and also for both video and audio.

And this is why I don’t watch TV anyways.
