PC to HDMI

Posted on 2013-05-13

I have a PC running Windows 7, and a new TV that does not have a VGA input.  How can I convert my VGA output to the new TV.  I will want to still use my normal monitor, so hopefully I can get some sort of splitter for my VGA output and a converter for the HDMI input.  Or else, is there a way I can get a device to plug into a USB output from my computer and carry the video/audio signal out to the HDMI input on the TV?

Thanks,

Phil

This USB adapter would do the trick and reading through the reviews it also does audio:

You won't be able to get a VGA to DVI converter because VGA is analog and DVI is digital.

Or you could get a new cheap video card that would do everything you need:

Splitters will only allow for mirroring FYI.

My advise to you would be to get a basic video card. Do not go for splitters or converters. If you go for a Video card with multiple display outputs, you can connect up to 3 screens (TV/Monitors) and also you can get audio via HDMI when connecting to your television.

You will have the option to either clone (duplicate) multiple screens OR keep them other way (no clone).

Just open any online shopping site and look for "hdmi video card" and get the one less than or equals $30

One of the sample below.

** xKincaidx suggested the same in his post (above). It would be BEST to go with HDMI video card rather than splitters and converters
