Netflix on a VGA Projector?

    Looking into the best way of doing this, the projector is only 1024x768 and only accepts VGA so whatever solution is suggested would need a HDMI to VGA with audio breakout, unless the suggested solution already has a VGA port on it!

    My initial thoughts are an Amazon FireTV and the aforementioned adaptor.


    Not got any old pcs laying around? Even something quite dated could run Netflix at that low res

    Its the convenience of a remote control that is appealing with the firetv/stick solutions.

    I'm trying to make it as easy/intuitive as possible.

    Any old laptops lying around? Pick up a dual core for pretty cheap these days I'd guess and use the VGA on that and pair it with a cheap remote like this:…941?hash=item1a04f3df2d:g:iYAAAOSw9N1V2wA~

    Probably find one cheaper, that was one of the top results

    Powered HDMI to VGA adapter and firestick or Chromecast?
