    Description-

    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/line out (HDMI 1.3 cables carry both video and audio). You may also need a VGA DB15 male/male cable (not included but available in the shop) 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. The video works fantastic with a Raspberry Pi right out of the box. To enable the audio and customize the resolution, check the Technical tab for our suggested /boot/config.txt The easiest way to do that is to insert the programmed Pi SD card into your computer and look for the config.txt file that is in the root directory of the SD card, edit it, and save it. The monitor will look best if you can set the HDMI output to the matching resolution so try that if you want a good looking display.

    It also works with other kinds of computers and HDMI output devices, we plugged it into a an XBOX360 and then also a Windows box and it came up as a secondary monitor with adjustable resolutions (from 800x600 up to 1920x1080) in the Display panel.

    Package comes with one adapter + 1 meter long 3.5mm audio cable.

    # goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border
