Product details

VGA to HDMI Converter with Audio Support

• Convert a VGA input into HDMI
• Allows a PC image to be displayed on a HDMI enabled TV with no VGA input
• Also converts stereo audio into the HDMI output
• Up to 1080p resolution support

This simple to use converter box allows any PC with a VGA output to connect to any HDMI enabled display device, such as a flat screen TV or projector. Ideal for TVs or projectors with no VGA input, or where those inputs are being used by other devices. It also converts stereo sound from the PC in the HDMI signal.

The VGA to HDMI converter when used with a laptop will support the resolution of the laptop screen. This could be up to 1080p. 

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 Ј50 worth of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I bought this VGA to HDMI converter yesterday (27/12/2016) as I use my laptop for karaoke and music videos. If we have a party at home, I always have to replace our main Samsung TV for our old TV because the Samsung doesn't have a VGA input whereas our old TV does have a VGA input. This unit works a treat. Straight out of the box, plugged it all in and hey presto! I have to agree with Dario's comment though about it being very over-priced for what it is! But having said that, it was either pay £50 for the converter or spend £300+ on a new laptop which has HDMI output.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job but................... Purchased a week ago but on initial installation with a Club Dell Windows 10 laptop could not get a picture on a 50" Samsung smart TV. Tried again on my own Panasonic TV with no success. Checked the Laptop analogue to PC input on TV and all ok. On the point of returning item when I thought I would just try with my own Fujitsu Laptop also running Windows 10. Hey presto it worked fine just plugged in and of it went. I checked the settings on both Laptops but could not find any differences. Puzzled further investigation revealed a 720 setting available for the second display which the Dell would not adjust to automatically. I manually corrected to 1064 x 720 and Hey Presto a picture. I subsequently set it to 1990 x 1080 and no problem. Checking the other available settings produced no picture. Moral of story, check your Laptop 2nd Display Settings if you can't connect automatically they must be set to 720 or 1080 for an HDMI picture . Windows Logo plus P will bring up the options. Just one problem can't get the picture central on the TV my TV doesn't allow for adjusting this......

Hi I want to play my TiVo box through my projector which is around 10 years old and has no hdmi port, new Tivo boxes are only hdmi would this be itembesuitable to connect, my projector has the yellow red and white ports and also the green black and red 

Asked by: Russell49
No this would work the other way around and take a VGA connection from an appliance and turn it into a HDMI connection for the projection (VGA Input / HDMI Output) What you require is HDMI Input / VGA output which is not possible with current technology

I notice this has an audio channel. Can I use this to take audio from my radio hifi amplifier (normally bare wire to speakers) and use it to provide audio in via HDMI to a AV Surround Receiver? If not, how would you connect these two? Thanks

Unfortunately this would not be possible.
