Surely this cannot work for anything apart from maybe a pc; as bluray players, ps3s etc. all output their HDMI feeds with HDCP protection meaning it cannot be converted to analog by a simple cable.

A pc may work if it does not output to HDMI with HDCP (unlikely, unless for bluray drive movies!)

Please someone correct me as if I am wrong, I would defo buy one! :roll:

1st off awesome site!
i have my old PC connected up to my TV through VGA as i have no HDMI port, and i get my sound through the phonos on the back of my cinema system, What advantage would this give me, if any? I understand that VGA isn't proper HD is this true?

This wont work with most PCs as the signals are different, VGA is one of the best ways to outpu to TV as many TVs dont do 1:1 pixel mapping over HDMI,

whats the difference from this to this:
blueunplugged.com/p.a…ase
?

would either of these work for a laptop to a monitor?

That link doesnt take you to anything ,

I believe alcopop may have meant this one:

blueunplugged.com/p.a…402

If any of you tech-savvies out there could answer the question, I'd be grateful, too. The VGA port on my Tosh seems to be the only possibility to connect it to my TV.

seems similar minus the sound cables...tempted

These cables are not for connecting your computer to your TV to use it as a monitor. They is for connecting your HDMI compatible DVD player/digibox/HDD recorder etc to your TV screen with a VGA input,

I've seen some weird cables at deal extreme, seems like at times they just take whatever spare connectors they have left and link them up with a bit of cable. I've seen stuff like VGA to s-video cables which as far as I know (and judging by reviews) dont actualiy do anything...

Some PCs and laptops will actually send a S-video signal ( TV OUT ) through a vga connection but they are few and far between,

this cable will not work for 360 or PS3, as for what it is used for I would guess, CCTV systems

sorry for posting incorrect link earlier, but can either of these cables be used to link a notebook, eg, the dell one to a monitor?

Cables are just bits of metal and plastic, ones with two different connectors will only work if both ends speak the same language (i.e. DVI-D and HDMI, or DVI-A and VGA). An HDMI to VGA cable will only work if you've got a device they either sends VGA over HDMI or understands HDMI over VGA. Most computers and TVs will only send/accept the signals that the port was originally designed for (with the exception of most desktop cards offering HDMI+ sound over DVI).

The bottom line is, this cable is very unlikely to work to connect a PC to a TV.

Thank you. That's the sort of clarification I needed.

You can connect a VGA output to a HDMI input but you'll need a converter box to convert the signal.

even if you could connect hdmi to analogue...seems totally pointless and defeats the whole point of having a digital source....solution is to get a tv with hdmi or sell the blu ray and stick with dvd until you can afford......my mum in law just bought a blu ray player but her tv only has av cable or scart inputs...blu ray has hdmi only ....doh!!

The point for me is to connect my laptop to my TV at all somehow.
