Connect VGA to HDMI
Everyone these days wants to connect their computer to their TV. People don't want to watch movies on their laptop. They want to watch it on their big-screen TV. Some new TVs won't have a PC input, but will have multiple HDMI inputs. And with the growing popularity of video content available on the Web, people need a solution to connect VGA to HDMI.
Unfortunately, you cannot convert VGA to HDMI with only a cable. So many of us still use a computer that doesn't have an HDMI output, or even a DVI output. It's still quite rare to see a video card that's equipped with an HDMI output. Some of the HDMI video cards don't even support audio, which ads another level of complication. The only solution we've found is to use a powered device that converts the VGA signal from analog to digital HDMI.
Some people have attempted to convert their VGA to DVI, and then convert their DVI to HDMI. Unfortunately, this won't work either. Before we explain why, please note that there are three types of standard DVI:
You might think that a DVI-I adapter would solve the problem by easily transferring video signals from VGA to DVI to HDMI. While the DVI-I will pass the analog VGA signal through the adapter, the HDMI spec simply won't read that analog signal. It dead ends there.
Luckily, we've found a really nice converter box that supports all High Definition Multimedia Interface specifications. It just got a whole lot easier to go digital. While it's not exactly "cheap," it's a lot less expensive than a new computer or an upgrade to a high-end video card. Check out this solution: VGA to HDMI Cable Converter.
