The HD2VGAMM6 6ft HDMI® to VGA converter cable lets you connect your HDMI equipped Chromebook™, laptop or desktop to a VGA monitor or projector, with no additional adapters or cables required.

The converter cable saves you the hassle of combining an HDMI to VGA adapter with a bulky VGA cable by providing an end-to-end solution for connecting your digital HDMI computer to your VGA monitor or projector.

Unlike most HDMI to VGA adapters which require a power outlet to convert the video signal, the HD2VGAMM6 doesn’t need external power in most installations. To work with Mac computers where extra power is needed, the HD2VGAMM6 features an optional integrated USB power source (USB cable not included), which makes connecting a display to your desktop or workstation that much easier, if additional power is required.

In the past, converting digital HDMI to analog VGA was a difficult and expensive task. Now, you can avoid upgrade costs by connecting your HDMI video source to your existing VGA monitor or projector using the HD2VGAMM6. Plus, because the adapter cable supports video resolutions up to 1920x1200 or 1080p, you can rest assured you can use your existing VGA display while maintaining high-definition video quality.

The HD2VGAMM6 converter cable delivers a precise 6ft connection that eliminates the clutter of excess cable length and ensures a tidy, professional installation. For longer shorter installations, we offer a 3 ft HDMI to VGA cable (HD2VGAMM3), and longer installations we offer a 10 ft HDMI to VGA cable (HD2VGAMM10), enabling you to choose the right cable length for your installation needs.

Please note: Digitally encrypted content from the HDMI video source will not be displayed.

The HD2VGAMM6 is backed by a 3-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Frequently Asked Questions


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 cables

  • Video adapter

  • 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.

Before You Buy

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.

For more information about passive and active DisplayPort video signal converters, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/DisplayPort_Converter_DP_Multi_Mode.

For more information about which type of video signal converter you should use when you convert video signals with an MST hub, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/mst_hubs_passive_vs_active_adapters.

6 ft HDMI to VGA Active Converter Cable

By: TCMi - 08/02/2015
Sadly, we could not get it to function. The computer saw the TV device, but we could not send the signal. Not sure it the issue was the PC, TV or the cable. Note: the cable comes with little/no instructions and does not explain to USB connector well. Normally, Startech items function as spec'd and come with excellent documentation.

great product

By: saraj - 12/14/2016
I received a free sample of the HDMI to VGA Converter Cable to try out and it worked great. The signal was clear, the speed was fast, and I the length of the cord was perfect. I would definitely recommend this product to other and buy another one in the future if needed!

Works as intended!

By: Jessica S - 01/02/2017
The cable itself is thick and seems like it was built to last. It's a perfect length for connecting an monitor on a desk to a computer on the floor perhaps. Hooking it up, it worked just as I expected. I did not have any problems playing the games I typically play on the computer, and the same holds true for streaming. It's a solid cable that does what it is supposed to do. Please note I received this cable for free for purposes of reviewing it.

Works as it should - plug and play!

By: ScottG416 - 01/14/2017
While in the midst of a PC refresh at work I was given the task of adding a second monitor to a work station. Having only one VGA port (already in use) and a free HDMI port I decided to check StarTech.com's connectivity guide and they indeed have a solution for VGA to HDMI. The cable works as it should by plugging it in and I also saved money by not having to buy another video card. Thank you StarTech.com. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

HDMI to VGA Cable

By: Starr - 01/20/2017
A good quality cable with really good picture resolution. StarTech seems to have paid attention to detail with this cable by using high quality components. Like any cable it is plug and play. The only let down I had with using this cable was trying to connect a laptop via VGA port to a monitors HDMI port. This did not work. This is only an HDMI source to VGA conversion cable. It will not convert VGA source to HDMI.

Works as intended

By: Dwardo - 01/24/2017
Have a laptop that I like to watch movies on but the screen is too small for the family. The only output I have on it is HDMI. I have a big monitor that takes a VGA input so I got this cable to use to watch movies from my laptop to my big computer monitor. Picture was clear and sharp and the connection was easy. The cable seems well built and made of good quality. The cable is thick and has some good weight to it. Would definitely recommend this cable to anyone. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Quality cable works well.

By: NickD_CA1 - 02/05/2017
I have been using this product for a few weeks now to send HDMI signal to VGA devices. I have used this device with several different laptops, screens and projectors. The cable comes in a bag with plastic protectors on the ends and no instructions. This is ok as it's very simple and strait forward. The cable is good quality and thickness. It does not get tangled easily and I don't feel like it's going to break near the ends. I have tried other HDMI to VGA cable and they have had bad output where colours are not correct and screen cuts in and out. No issues with this cable so far. I have not needed to use the Micro-USB for added power so far, but I like that I have the option if the situation ever came up. So far I am happy with this product and will continue to use it often. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Failed within the first 24 hours of usage

By: Benjamin - 01/01/2019
I ordered the cable on December 27th, and it arrived on December 31st. I installed it the afternoon that I got it and it worked almost flawlessly. (The only glitch was that when the computer went to sleep, hibernation or shutoff the Dell monitor (let's call it Monitor 6) that HDMI/VGA cable was attached to would stay ON displaying Dell's Self Test Feature Check while the other 5 monitors would power down. On any normal VGA cable, Monitor 6 will power down with the rest of the monitors.) Aside from the above-mentioned glitch, the HDMI/VGA cable performed correctly... Until this afternoon. This morning the HDMI/VGA cable performed as it had yesterday (glitch included). But, when I woke my computer from Sleep mode this afternoon the computer no longer recognized there being a 6th monitor and Monitor 6 continued displaying Dell's Self Test Feature Check as it had when the computer was asleep. I've tested the HDMI/VGA cable on other monitors that I know work, but with the HDMI/VGA cable, the monitor and computer fail to recognize each other's existence.
