NEW PRODUCT – HDMI to VGA Video + Audio Adapter. If you have a computer or tablet or device with HDMI output but you want to connect it to a projector, monitor or display with VGA input, you have come to the right place! This nifty adapter cable has a classic HDMI plug connector at one end and at the other end a DB-15 VGA connector (it has hex nuts that you can remove if you are trying to mate it with a cable that also has hex nuts). There’s also an audio jack on the side, this provides stereo headphone out (HDMI cables carry both video and audio). You may also need a VGA DB15 male/male cable (not included) to connect this to your monitor!
We tried this out with a Raspberry Pi and an old VGA monitor we had and found the display output to be very crisp and vivid. For use with a Raspberry Pi we suggest editing config.txt to set “hdmi_safe=1″ output for best results (otherwise, the Pi may not ‘recognize’ the HDMI display and revert to composite output)
Package comes with one adapter + 1 meter long 3.5mm audio cable.
- Adapter body: 57mm x 40mm x 17mm
- Cable tail: 6″ / 150mm long
- Standard HDMI plug
- Standard DB15 VGA socket
