    Couldn't get it to work either non none of 3 monitors. Maybe chromecast needs some special signal?

    Hi Fizzelo, I have followed up your post and purchased "hdmi to dvi-d" connector for my TV which is LG RZ-32LZ55. I think its a pretty old tv and am stuck with it.

    I couldn't get my chromecast connected to this TV using the above hdmi to dvi-d connector. It says no signal.

    What am I missing here? Any help/comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Most likely the old monitor doesn't support HDCP - could be because of that...

    Any idea why this wouldn't work?
    Bought the same adapter from Pimoroni plugged it in but monitor says "no signal"
    Chromecast works on normal TV with HDMI.

    Are there specific requirements of the monitor other than a DVI input?

    have a somewhat dated TV...no HDMI so got a DVI-HDMI adapter as specified. When Using my Chromebook Pixel, I am able to cast from that to TV screen - all good. However no sound.

    I'm not able to install SoundAbout on my Chromebook (doesn't support Google Play / Android apps).

    When casting, I get no sound from laptop so can't even use that. Any other way to get sound to my TV while casting? Thanks.
