Is it possible to use the 240V oven outlet and convert the voltage to standard 120V with some kind of external adapter?

Yes, but I do not know of an adapter per se. Expose your 220V power lines. There should be two hot wires (black and red). They can technically be split apart and wired to two separate 110V outlets, but the neutral wire would have to be shared (not split, shared), same with the ground wire.

AnswerDon't do this. It is a hack and doesn't meet code. Just run the right wire.

No adapter is needed, 110 and 115 volt are interchangeable.

Not generally no. There would be no point. The easiest is to convert the standard yellow video out to coax with an RF modulator

Unfortunately, there is no known adapter that you can use to convert hdmi to dvi at the moment, but if you search best buy and staple, hopefully they will have some in stock.
