Product ID: VGA2HDMIPRO
The VGA2HDMIPRO VGA to HDMI® Audio Video Converter with scaler takes an analog VGA video signal and converts to a digital HDMI or DVI-D output. The device has a built-in scaler that will allow you to adjust the output signal to a resolution that is compatible with your HDMI (or DVI) enabled display. In addition to the video conversion, the device also features both a 3.5 mm and Toslink audio connection providing the option to output the accompanying audio combined into the HDMI output, or through a separate Toslink cable to your television or home theater receiver. A perfect solution for bridging your analog technology with a newer DVI or HDMI-enabled device while maintaining high-quality video and audio performance (up to 1920x1200 / 1080p).
The VGA to HDMI converter/scaler features an automatic native resolution detection feature that make it easy to setup and ensures broad display compatibility as well as a convenient on-screen display menu offering access to several selectable output resolutions and image adjustments giving you full control of your multimedia output.

This device is plug and play. It does not use any drivers, and does not require any setup tasks other than plugging in the source (for example, a computer) and the destination (for example, a monitor).
When you troubleshoot issues with a video adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)
Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
Use a different cable, video adapter, 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.
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:
Remove the video adapter from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video adapter.
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, adapter, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.
Try the following:
The error “Out of Range” normally means that the resolution being output by the computer is not compatible with the display. Try lowering the resolution to see if that helps resolve the issue. You may need to connect another monitor or restart the computer or source to accomplish this.
The VGA2HDMIPRO automatically defaults to HDMI audio if the HDMI destination supports it. If the HDMI destination does not support HDMI audio (for example, when converting to DVI), the VGA2HDMIPRO defaults to 3.5 mm audio out. The menu has an option to switch between 3.5 mm audio and TOSLINK (optical) audio.
Here are the menu options for this device:
Unfortunately no, this device has an intended source and an intended destination. Refer to the title of the webpage for this order.
This is an active video signal converter.
A passive video signal converter changes the type of connection that is being used but does not change the signal that passes through the converter. Because the video signal is not modified, passive converters tend to be smaller, simpler, and less expensive than active video signal converters. Examples of passive converters include DVI-I to VGA, HDMI to DVI, and DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort converters.
An active video signal converter modifies both the type of connection that is being used and the signal that passes through the converter. Because this type of conversion can be complex, active converters tend to be larger than passive video signal converters and sometimes require additional power. Examples of active converters include DVI-D to VGA, HDMI to DisplayPort, and VGA to HDMI converters.
