Hi Guys,

I was wondering if you guys could answer me a question. I have a HDMI port spare on my PC and I want to get a cable running from it into a VGA port on a monitor.

I have been thinking and I'm sure I've got a solution. I'm just going to explain it and hope you understand :)

VGA Monitor + HDMI port on the PC. DVI to VGA cable (VGA goes into the monitor). DVI female to HDMI male adapter (HDMI goes into the computer).

I'm thinking this should work without the need for a convertor? Do I need a specific spec of DVI?

I am able to research this but I figured that since we pay for the EE server, I'd use it :)

Thanks guys.
