I have a device that has an HDMI output port. The specification says that I can connect it to a monitor that has an HDMI input port (through HDMI to HDMI cable) or one that has a DVI-D input port. Now, I don't have either. What I have are monitors that have only VGA input ( Actually, the connector port on the monitor reads RGB input, but I am assuming it is a VGA port). So I am thinking of buying a HDMI to VGA cable.
Will such a hack work ?
The device is BeagleBoard.
I can get an HDMI to VGA male cable, but all monitors seem to need female connectors, so if I can get a VGA female to female cable connect it to my HDMI to VGA male cable, will this work too ?
