Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

This device outputs a VGA signal. If you have a display or video destination that uses another type of video connection, there are ways that you can convert the video signal or connection. These options are outlined below and organized by the target connection.

Target connection First conversion Second conversion (if required)
DVI-D VGA to HDMI: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=VGA&filter_AVOUTPUT=HDMI. HDMI to DVI-D: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=VGA&filter_AVOUTPUT=HDMI.
DVI-I VGA to DVI-I: https://www.startech.com/Cables/Audio-Video/Video-Adapter/DVIVGA/. N/A
HDMI

VGA to HDMI: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=VGA&filter_AVOUTPUT=HDMI.

N/A
DisplayPort VGA to HDMI: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=VGA&filter_AVOUTPUT=HDMI. HDMI to DisplayPort: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=HDMI&filter_AVOUTPUT=DisplayPort.

Note: You might need to use more than one converter as part of your solution; however, you should try to use the least number of converters and cables to connect your source and destination. If you have the option to convert to multiple target video connections, choose the option that requires the fewest number of conversions.

DVI-I and DVI-D

When you convert from VGA to DVI, you need to know if you are converting to a DVI-I or a DVI-D connection. For more information about how to identify the type of connection that you need, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/video_signal_converters_dvi_interface.

You also need to know which form of DVI that you are using, because DVI-I supports both analog (VGA) and digital (HDMI) signals, while DVI-D only supports digital (HDMI) signals.  

Note: Certain devices may have a DVI-I connection but only support DVI-D signaling. It is important to verify that your DVI-I device supports DVI-I signaling.

This device has a VGA input port.  If you have a video source that uses another video connection, there are options available to convert the video signal or connection. These options will be outlined below for each video source connection.

DVI-I and DVI-D

When you convert from DVI to VGA, you need to know if you are converting from a DVI-I or a DVI-D connection. For more information about how to identify the type of connection that you have, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/video_signal_converters_dvi_interface.

You also need to know which form of DVI that you are using, because DVI-I supports both analog (VGA) and digital (HDMI) signals, while DVI-D only supports digital (HDMI) signals.  Some DVI-I connections only support DVI-D signaling.  In this case, you must use a DVI-D to VGA converter.

Troubleshooting

There are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential issues. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Video and Ethernet cables
  • Mouse and keyboard
  • Video source (such as a DVR or computer)
  • Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)

Note: When you test setup components, you should avoid using video adapters. For example, if you are converting a VGA source to HDMI for use with an HDMI extender, you should use an HDMI source when you test the components.

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use a different cable, mouse, keyboard, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
  • Use the cable, mouse, keyboard, video extender, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.
  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without using the KVM extender.
  • Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.

Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, extender, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.

Peforms as described

By: RBPAC TD - 06-05-2015
Worked out of the box, no problems. Instructions a little convoluted, but everything is there is you read through them all. Pay particular attention to the keyboard shortcuts, they are critical to correct set up. Have no complaints about this product whatsoever, so far, only time will tell about durability.

Works well

By: TrustFire - 08-03-2018
We just installed this and it works well. We had issues, but it was because our crimping tool bends a pin the wrong way. Keyboard, mouse, and screen. But it doesn't allow for a USB printer to work off the USB. I was able to add non-powered USB hub which bot hthe mouse and keyboard work off of, but no printer.
