Edit: I don't know his TV, the VGA cable is capable to display 1920x1080, that's about it...
If the TV isn't capable of displaying 1080p over VGA, then he can't use VGA, but that doesn't mean VGA can't display that resolution. The thread started by him/her asking a VGA cable. That's what I answer. If the TV can't display that resolution, then the fault is on the TV, not the cable.

cclloyd9785,

I'll summarize...

First you need to check if your TV is capable of receiving 1920x1080 over VGA. The VGA cable it self is capable of displaying over 2048x1536 pixels, the limiter would be the TV input stage.

You asked for a cable, so I answered the cable is capable, your display adapter is capable, the last stage would be to check your TV for it's capability to display 1920x1080 over VGA. Not all HDTV capable (or rather it's limited by the manufacturer) displaying 1920x1080 resolution over VGA.

I thought it safe to assume that he has an HDTV to watch HD content...I also am quite sure he is not going to connect an HDTV using a D-Sub 15 connector (VGA) and have it show HD content.

It's not about what the spec says - it's reality...

True, but sometimes people do other things when they connect their PCs to HDTV, I for example use my 42" HDTV to play games, I could care less about HD movies. My dad connects his Atom box to his 40" Samsung to browse web, he said "I can read the text, it's huge, much larger than my 22" monitor....". Assumption is good, but at times it might fail you . I prefer giving other users the basic knowledge and let them decide by them selves.

I said i was fine with 1080i, as I know my monitor can display that, because my Xbox plays that.

How would I be able to find out if my TV is capable of displaying 1080 through VGA.

And are we sure that the 2 missing pins in my cable arent affecting it?

Finally, Would a VGA to HDMI or DVI adapter would work?
