DVD HDMI to VGA Adapter for going to VGA only Projector.
Posted on 2009-04-07
Is there a HDMI to VGA adapter? We are a church and we used to run all svideo to the video projectors. This wasn't a great solution but it worked for laptops that have svideo out and dvd players.
We have tried playing dvd video clips through the laptop, but it's really not ideal and our media program (Media Shout) spins down the dvd and then there's a delay when the slide for the video comes up because it has to spin up the dvd.
We are now running VGA (which I've wanted to do for years), but this excludes most dvd players on the market.
My thought was that I could use a dvd player with hdmi out, and then with an adapter take it to VGA (if possible). My video card came with a VGA to HDMI adapter. I just need an adapter that goes the other way around. HDMI to VGA. Any other suggestions would be appreciated too.
