VGA to HDMI - No Signal

Recommended Posts

I've got a TV to hook up to a computer but it has no VGA port so i bought a VGA to HDMI converter but can't get any signal.

 

This is what i've bought: http://www.misco.co.uk/productinfo/productinfo?productCode=200981&affiliate=GooglePLA&cm_mmc=google-_-Product_PlusBox-_-cables-_-200981&catargetid=530001250000128925&cadevice=c&cagpspn=pla&gclid=CP2PiZLu8rkCFTLMtAodgToAVg

 

I have tried various resolutions and enabled 1080p PAL in adobe catalyst software but getting nothing at all.

 

Not really sure what to try now, any ideas?

I can't imagine that working, you get DVI to VGA connectors because there are VGA pins present on DVI ports, but as far as I know, HDMI does not have such pins.

Are you going from HDMI TV to VGA on the PC? If so that won't work.

 

HDMI out on PC to VGA Monitor is what this adapter is designed for.

Yep, as above, that adapter will only go from HDMI -> VGA. To go from VGA -> HDMI you will need an analogue -> digital converter.

Hard to say because the quality was already below average, it runs through various components and lots of cables (the computer it's connected to is about 50 metres away).. but works fine for what we need it to do. I wouldn't say the quality was any worse.
