Step 1: The Mistakes
Technically we can transfer from HDMI port to VGA port without converter. All you need an HDMI to VGA cord. It is not the same case when we need to send from VGA to HDMI. In market there are many types of connectors, the choice has to be right. I learnt it right after 2 mistakes.
Please don't buy (Mistakes done by me)-
1. Connecting cables with one end HDMI (Male) & other end VGA (Male). This may work in HDMI to VGA data transfer, not VGA to HDMI.
2. Connector cables with one end HDMI (Female) & other end VGA (Female) . Again this may work in HDMI to VGA data transfer, not VGA to HDMI.
Step 2: The Technical Solution That Works
Please buy a VGA to HDMI Converter. For details of instruction follow the video. It works flawlessly.
