Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

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.

Certain HDMI sources have known issues where they do not output enough power over HDMI to power HDMI adapters.  In this case, it is best to consider HDMI adapters with external power over USB or with an external power adapter. This affects our HDMI to VGA adapters. See below for alternative solutions.

Standard HDMI to VGA

Our HD2VGAA2 has both audio and a USB Micro B port for external power.

Micro HDMI to VGA

Our MCHD2VGAA2 has both audio and a USB Micro B port for external power.

Mini HDMI to VGA

Our HDACFM lets you adapt from standard HDMI to Mini HDMI. You can pair this with our HD2VGAA2 to go from Mini HDMI to VGA with external power.

Try the following:

  1. Check that the monitor’s video port works with another source.
  2. Check that the cables between the source and the destination work with other equipment.
  3. Check whether the video adapter works with another source and another destination.

This is likely a High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) issue. If you are converting a video signal from a device that can play copyright-protected content, HDCP will block the conversion to an analog signal (for example, VGA) or to any video capture cards.

You will likely run into this issue when you use devices like Blu-ray players, DVD players, and certain gaming consoles. For more information on HDCP and gaming consoles, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/video_capture_cards_video_game_console_compatibility.

Some video cards also output an HDCP signal full time. In this case there should be an option for your video card to disable this feature. You might need to contact the manufacturer of your video card for more information.

Adhering to HDCP is required for converting all digital signals to analog signals or to video capture cards. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do in these situations other than convert to a digital display.

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.

Installation

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).

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.

Unfortunately no, this device has an intended source and an intended destination.  Refer to the title of the webpage for this order.

Hi there, The HD2VGAE2 is a video-only adapter. For HDMI to VGA with audio, the HD2VGAA2 (http://www.startech.com/HD2VGAA2) is a great solution.

Works Like a Charm !

By: JRMAN - 01/19/2015
Purchased this item for my HP Envy 19 Laptop. Laptop only had a HDMI connection and my monitor only had a VGA connection. Didn't want to buy a new monitor so gave this a try. It connected with no issue and works great. Highly recommend this item.
