LG W2242S 22-inch Wide HDMI issue

Hello there

I have and 8800 GT with DVI/HDMI outputs. I purchased a LG W2242S 22-inch Wide LCD monitor which only has a VGA input. Not a problem as a DVI adaptor sorts this but when a use a HDMI to VGA picture as it stays on stanby.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks in advance

The reason it won't work is that HDMI is digital only and VGA is analogue only. You need something in between to convert the signal from digital to analogue. The DVI-VGA adapter works because the DVI port is a DVI-I port, which supports both digital and analogue.

What stormy said is right, you need something like this for HDMI to VGA HDfury, but they're pretty expensive for such a trivial thing. The only main difference between HDMI and DVI is you can send sound over HDMI natively, but as you're converting VGA, then you might as well just stick with VGA to DVI.

HDMI to HDMI issue
I recently bought a HDMI to HDMI cable and I tried to connect it from a pc monitor to my laptop. I believe this is because my laptop hdmi connection is an output. What would I have to buy to get it to work. A VGA to HDMI converter? Thanks.
