i bought one thinking it would work i got it and it didn't work so they sent me a new one, that one didn't work either, and i wasn't going to wait another week only to find that that one doesn't work either. so don't buy it, get a different one from somewhere else.Read More
The inference is that if you plug the VGA end into a video source such as the back of a laptop and the other HDMI end into a monitor (or other device which can render or copy the video), you are home free. No No No. This product does not change or convert the VGA signal levels/protocols from VGA to HDMI. I now notice this has been pointed out to Overstock many times previously by reviewers. CHANGE the Ad to indicate that this product does not convert signals - it merely is a bunch of wires running from one socket type to another, probably well made but... A true device has electronics between the adapters, a power source, and costs much more. How about my money back or credit ?Read More
I have shared this product with at least 10 people no complaint! All positive Feedback!Read More
After receiving the cable I hooked it up to a laptop VGA port then into a HDMI port of a TV, didn't work. I then tested both the VGA port of the laptop and it was working and also tested the HDMI port of the TV and that was also good. I then thought it was the wrong cable and thought it would work from an HDMI port of a Blu-ray player to the VGA port of a monitor but then again NO GOOD! This is my second experience with Overstock.com and I was very happy with the first.Read More
this cord did not work for our needs. i read reviews about needing an adapter etc but decided to try it anyway since other reviews said it worked just fine. had it worked, we would have kept it. its just a cord, looks and all that werent important.Read More
Flat out doesn't work, actually I bought 2 from them and neither works.Read More
This product seems to be a simple "plug and play" option for connecting a laptop to the TV. However for this to work you would need a HDMI conversion box. This seems to run around $80. So what seems inexpensive and uncomplicated was not. Ended up using a VGA to VGA connection instead.Read More
this will not work to bring vga to an hdmi input on a tv or monitor. I didn't think it would work but for the price I thought I would try it out myself. I should have known. Waste of money.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello 9robert, this will be sent in a box. Thank you for shopping with us!
is this the cable allowing me to connect my laptop to my older tv set to stream movies on the tv? if not, what is the proper cable called?
Hello roma1623, No, you will need a converter. Your Video card must support digital signal output through VGA port function. Please consult with your VGA card's user manual for more information. HDMI to VGA / RCA cable is designed to connect and transfer signals from HDMI port to VGA / RCA port. This cable functions as a signal transmitter, but NOT a signal converter. As HDMI carries digital signals while VGA / RCA carries analog signals. In order for these two formats of signal to communicate with each other, both input and output devices needs to support the signal conversion function (code and decode), please kindly check with your user manual. If both input / output device do not support signal conversion, a signal conversion box is required. Thank you for shopping with us.
it did not work for us that way.
This cable works with a directly connection from db9 pin port VGA to HDMI Monitors?
Yes, it does.
No this is not all you need to connect. You would need a conversion box.
