​thanks will give that a try

Don't these adapters only work if the tv is capable of a digital signal in the first place.
I remember trying to do something similar with a old projector once that wasn't digitally enabled and read somewhere saying that.
may be totally wrong lol

Less than half the price on ebay uk sellers
how good is his current tv? might be worth looking for cheap/free second hand tv. you can gte decent quality 32" tv for £100 so I wouldnt be surprised if you can get one second hand for free or ~£25

There should be no trace that the signal was digital if the converter is doing it's job. You would be using the analog inputs on your TV anyway.
Could this have something to do with HDCP? Running through a converter would render the HDCP useless and thus refuses to handshake and display?

Could be wrong though...
