Connecting DVI to VGA
I’m looking to buy a nettop, possibly this one from ebuyer but I need to plug it into a VGA monitor. A quick google suggest some DVI ports have VGA, some don’t. Any idea how to find out? Is one option much more likely if I take a chance? Still waiting on a response from ebuyer and acer but you guys know more than them anyway.
Failing that anyone seen a reasonably specced nettop with VGA? They all seem to be HDMI/DVI(which does make sense)Posted 4 years agoStonerSubscriber
I run the HDMI output from my Xbox through a magic box that squirts phono sound and VGA out the other end. Seems to work quite well on my mahoosive old samsung monitor with built in amp & speakers.
will go and check my ebay history and come back with a link.Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber
The sockets on the right (C1-C4) are analogue.
I had a quick google and couldn’t find a definitive answer for that machine. Acer’s own datasheet just says “DVI”.
Offhand, I don’t recall ever seeing a digital-only DVI in the flesh so if I were to guess I’d say you’d probably be ok. That said, I’ve only really seen it on discreet graphics cards, what’s going on with that form factor is anyone’s guess.Posted 4 years agoaracerSubscriber
You don’t even need to spend as much as Stoner’s solution to connect to a monitor, given you presumably don’t need audio – I have one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Neewer-Black-Adapter-Converter-Laptop/dp/B007KEIRNG/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=A1ZKG9B72CK840 which I use to connect my RaspberryPi to a VGA monitor – if it works with a RPi then it should work with anything.Posted 4 years ago
