Screen flickering woes
This product does exactly what it says on the tin. The only down side I've experienced so far is that from my PC to my panasonic viera tx-l32b6b via this gizmo the screen randomly resets as though the TV has just been switched to the HDMI input. I've had no other issues connecting to other TV's (it does the same on both inputs) and have no other HDMI equipment to test them with. All other research points to faulty converters (this is now the 2nd one and I cannot believe my misfortune to have received 2 faulty units)
When it does work without flickering the picture is perfectly synced up to the audio, but the flicker issue I am experiencing is not what I expected for nearly £50 worth of equipment.
No problems setting up. Connect cables and 'go'. My only problem relates to my laptop options and need to refresh myself on how to get display on tv AND laptop at same time, plus a little bit of 'work' so that images are not 'distorted' (= slightly 'squashed') on tv. My main use for the convertor was to display Powerpoint and mainly just large text - so slight 'distortion' of text is not an issue. My laptop is an Acer ASPIRE 5733, with no HDMI output, about two to three years old. The tv is a SAMSUNG smart model just a few weeks old.
No exaggeration but this is the must buy product for anyone addicted to YouTube and online movies as this product delivers BIG TIME ! Just connect male to male vga cable to devise and hdmi cable from devise to hd tv and off you go it really is that easy. There is no loss in quality on the display on your hd ready tv infact i found the display to be even better than pc considering the much larger scale. If you view content on pc or laptop and dont want to go down the road of having to burn a dvd to watch on the big screen then this is the answer to all your prayers. 1080i of pure online or hard drive heaven.
Only works at an 800 x 600 resolution. Useless.
Maplin Moderator Note: We are sorry to hear about your experience with this adapter. The device will support 1920x1080 output. Please get in touch with a Maplineer and we will do our best to help.
Regrettably this convertor unit did not work. It relayed sound but no image. The unit was return and a replacement sent out. It also failed to relay the image from a laptop VGA cable to a TV HDMI cable.
Maplin Moderator Note: This is likely to be an issue with the native resolution of your Laptop. Please get in touch with a Maplineer and we will do our best to help’
very simple to use , and does exactly what it needs to do .
This Convertor unit is a very useful connector. Although out of stock at the time of ordering, the unit was re-ordered and delivered within two weeks. Excellent service
Totally frustrated by attempts to produce a TV image. Eventually noticed that what might be an LED was unlight. Tried the output from power supply - nothing. Confirmed with local Maplins who tried another supply. eureka! Phoned on line who promised a new power supply. It arrived the following day!! Tried converter again, LED lights up, but still no picture despite trying all the pc and TV settings I could find. Tried a different laptop (both Dell), Wow a picture on the TV. Still nothing from the original laptop. Guess the converter is good if you have some patience and it seems to be the only solution if basically your pc has only VGA and your TV has only HDMI
