Thread: HDMI to VGA adapter?
HDMI to VGA adapter?
ive been looking at an adapter for my ps3 so i can use the HDMI output to pla through a VGA monitor
there are many different adapters to try and cause they are all £50-£100 i was wondering if anyone already uses such an adapter and which one is the best option
go with a respected brand. that way quality loss will be minimal when converting from digital to analogue signal.
HDMI to DVI is much more common and less expensive route and almost all newer models of moniters have a DVI port on them. plus your video quality wouldnt suffer at all since your sticking with a digital signal as opposed to a analog signal (VGA)
i.e. 3 pieces of equipment
* 1 x HDMI Cable
* 1 x HDMI-DVI adaptor
* 1 x DVI-VGA adaptor
The cost of the two adaptors should be a lot cheaper than 50-100 pounds...
What are you trying to achieve?
In my experience. If you are trying to attach your PS3 to an LCD monitor that only supports VGA, adapting form HDMI to VGA is possible. However, it will not result in a HD picture.
And to answer the original question, I'd suggest buying a new monitor unless the one you have is really expensive. For less than 100 pounds you can get yourself a nice DVI (or even HDMI) capable monitor.
