HDMI is digital and VGA is analog, so you'll need a dedicated converter, which is usually powered. I have the same issue at work, they only have Display Ports and no HDMI inputs. You can't use a pass through cable to turn HDMI output to VGA input.
You know what, HDMI-to-VGA and VGA-to-HDMI are something totally different. The former should have a DAC and the later should have an ADC. I wonder if there's any of them on the market has both and is bi-directional. Obviously for ICS you need the first one.
By the way does none of the monitors has a DVI port either? Coz HDMI to DVI is much easier and can be passive.
Apologies, a bit outdated with some of the terminology used!
Thanks for the response Rumbaar
Tom - my our monitors here in the office do indeed have DVI-D, are you able to offer guidance on what I need to buy to make it work?
Hi Tom Yan,
It is necessary to use an active converter to send the video image from the HDMI to VGA monitor.
This is an example of the converter:
This has worked for me - thank you for your input!
I am glad the workaround worked.
