HDFURY - DVI TO VGA(RGB) CONVERTER *BLUE EDITION* (STANDARD EDITION)
Question: How do you connect a digital source device with an HDMI or DVI output to a display that only has an analog VGA (HD15) input?
Answer: Use HDfury.
HDfury is a revolutionary product that allows you to use any HDMI/DVI device on analog displays like PC monitors, video projectors or older HDTV’s in full resolutions up to 1080p!
If you own a high quality monitor/projector/TV that does not have a HDMI connector you need this device, it will save you from buying an expensive new screen in order to enjoy the 720p or 1080p resolution your display already supports!
HDfury module will transform any "technically able" ANALOG display into a DIGITAL display performing a perfect visual HD @ 720p/1080p from any HDMI/HDCP sources such as PS3, X360 Elite, HD-DVD&Blu-Ray player, SAT&Cable HDTV setbox, HDMI graphic card, and more.
IMPORTANT NOTE: HDfury receives HDMI resolutions such as 720p (1280x720) and 1080p (1920x1080) and outputs them without changing anything in RGB format. Therefore, your displays VGA input must be able to support a 1280x720 resolution for 720p and 1920x1080 for 1080p. If it does not specifically support those resolutions, then it may not be able to render the picture. Please note, 1280x768 is NOT the same 1280x720 as commonly believed. PLEASE CHECK YOUR DISPLAYS DOCUMENTION TO MAKE SURE IT CAN SUPPORT THE CORRECT RESOLUTIONS.
HDFURY is available in 3 versions, which are basically the same unit, but they are supplied with a different connecting cable.

What is HDfury ?
HDfury is a tiny external addon card/adapter that you can hook up on any RGB display through its SUB-D HD15 Female Input.
Once screwed, it becomes a "part of the display" itself and will permanently perform an outstanding HDCP modification. Therefor, you can connect any HDMI source in Full HD 1080p to your now "enhanced" display hooked up with HDfury module !
Why do i need HD(720p) or Full HD(1080p) ?
Well, you don't need it. But you may want it !
HD-DVD players, Blu-Ray players, HDMI graphic card, PS3, all of them are able to unleash their true potential (720p/1080p mode) only through HDMI output.
If you want a valid ticket for the Full HD world you either need a compatible display(with HDMI input) or a solution for your existing display.
Why do i need a HDCP compliant display ?
HDMI is a new standard that comes with hardware protection called HDCP.
If your display don't have a HDMI input you won't be able to display 720p/1080p signal on it (from HDMI sources)
Prior to exchange Data Video, HDMI source is exchanging keys with HDMI display.
Both have a special HDCP chip embedded. If your display doesn't have it, even if it's technically able to display 720p or 1080p signal, it will display a BLACK SCREEN.
On Playstation3, 1080p mode is only available through HDMI output !
What can i do if my display is not HDCP compliant ?
You can buy a new display with HDMI input or use a HDCP stripper/converter box
They will extend video link to a "man-in-the-middle" device which will remove HDCP protection and output Analog RGB
Some issues with those HDCP stripper/converter box are the following:
- They need extra wires, such as Power Supply, extra analog cable.
- Most of the time, switchs or settings need to be tweaked.
- Quality is limited and restricted because of longer analog link (need of VGA analog cable)
- They are not compliant to HDCP rules as they allow easy access to decrypted analog video.
What are the advantages of using HDfury ?
HDfury is the world first device that you can directly screw on your display.
Unlike HDCP stripper solution on the market HDfury is compliant to HDCP rules it does not allow and end-user easy access to analog decrypted signal.
Shortest Analog Link as possible also ensure Highest Video Quality as possible !
Alu and Gold platted materials,
It can be used and sold legally to transform any RGB display into a HDCP compliant display.
It does not require external power supply to operate
| HDFURY - DVI TO VGA(RGB) CONVERTER *BLUE EDITION* (STANDARD EDITION) |
|Question: Will this device allow me to connect my VGA source device to my HDMI display? |
|Answer: No, it only works in one direction. |
|Question: Will this device transmit audio? |
|Answer: No, it only provides a video connection. You will need an additional cable like PID# 665 to connect audio. |
|Question: What is HDfury ? |
|Answer: The HDfury is a tiny external add-on adapter that is used to add a digital DVI/HDMI input to older display devices without digital inputs so that the newest sources such as HD-DVD/Blu-ray players can used.It is connected to any RGB display through the SUB-D HD15 (VGA) Female Input or RGBHV BNC inputs using an optional extender cable. Once in place the HDfury performs HDCP decryption and HDMI to RGB conversion. You can then connect any HDMI source in full HD 1080p directly to your now "enhanced" display! |
|Question: Prior the HDfury, what could I do if my display was not HDCP compliant? |
|Answer: You had to either buy a new display with an HDMI input or use a HDCP stripper/converter box which remove HDCP protection and output analog RGB. These boxes have the following issues/problems: |
- They need extra wires for the power supply and analog cables.
- Often switches or settings need to be tweaked.
- Quality is limited and restricted because of the longer analog link.
- They are not compliant to HDCP rules as they allow easy access to the decrypted analog video.
|Question: What are the advantages of using HDfury? |
|Answer: - HDfury can screw directly to your display therefore (unlike the stripper/converter boxes) it remains compliant to the HDCP rules as it does not allow and end-user easy access to the analog decrypted signal. |
- It can therefore be used and sold legally to transform any RGB display into a HDCP compliant display.
- Shortest analog link possible ensures the highest video quality possible!
- Aluminum and gold plated materials.
- It does not require external power supply to operate.
|Question: Does the HDfury change the resolution? Upconvert or downcovert? |
|Answer: The HDfury does not change the resolution or refresh rate in any way. It simply converts the digital input signal to an analog RGBHV (VGA) signal. It also provides HDCP decryption if needed. The HDfury outputs whatever resolution you feed it. Absolutely nothing is changed. In other words, if you feed the HDFury a 720p/60Hz digital signal the only thing it will output is a 720p/60Hz analog signal. Feed the HDfury a 1080p/60Hz signal and it''ll output a 1080p/60Hz signal... and so on. |
|Question: I use component cables to connect my HD-DVD/Blu-Ray player to my display device and it works just fine! Why do I need HDfury? |
|Answer: HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players can also upconvert standard definition DVDs to higher resolutions (720p, 1080i, 1080p), but they only do this via the HDMI outputs (not component). So if you want to get the higher resolution benefits of your player''s upconversion circuitry, you''re forced to use HDMI. As well, in the future it may not be possible to pass certain high definition content over component video cables. A content flag called the ICT (Image Constraint Token) allows broadcasters and movie studios to limit or "down-res" the HD video signal to standard definition 480P resolution over component video cables. This is not something that has been activated yet, but it could be used at some point in the future. And the most important reason to use HDfury: The picture quality is substantially better! (Sharper/cleaner/less noise/less ringing/etc). Read the reviews above for some examples! |
|Question: My display has composite (ie: combined) sync with only 4 BNC inputs not 5. (Examples: Barco 7xx/Cine7 or Ampro). What cable do I order? How do I hook it up? |
|Answer: Order the GREEN (5-BNC breakout cable) and combine the H/V sync lines using a $2 BNC T-connector like this. You could also use an Extron 109 or 202 box as well to combine the two sync lines. |
|Question: I have a scaler or doubler (ex: Lumagen) with DVI inputs and an RGBHV output connected to my display device. I don''t need an HDfury right? |
|Answer: Incorrect. You still need the HDfury if you want to use HDMI sources such as HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players that may have HDCP-protected content. The scaler, by law, is not allowed to output content via RGB if the source content is HDCP protected. The scaler will simply TURN OFF its analog RGB output. Only the digital DVI/HDMI outputs will remain on. To solve this, connect the HDfury to the DVI output of your scaler, and then connect the HDfury to your display device. Simple! |
|Question: I want to connect a longer cable to the output of the HDfury. Can I do that? |
|Answer: No. Keep the analog cable between the HDfury''s output and the device it is connected to as SHORT as possible. Only use the HDfury plugged directly into a display device, or use one of the 3 very short (4-6") RED/GREEN/BLUE high quality extender cables that comes with the HDfury. Failing to do so will result in a lesser than optimal image quality. Reason: The HDfury was not built to drive cables as it does not have an output stage. If you can''t keep the HDfury close to the display device, no problem! Keep the cable short by plugging it into your scaler passthrough, transcoder with passthrough, your switcher, Extron booster, or any other device with an output stage meant to drive longer cables. |
|Question: The specs say that the HDfury draws it''s power directly from the DVI/HDMI line but that an optional +5VDC input is provided for HDMI cables that are over 5 meters (16 feet) or if the source device is unable to supply adequate power. What sort of power supply do I need for this? When do I need to use an external power supply? |
|Answer: The DC jack on the side of the HDfury must follow all these requirements: |
- Provide REGULATED (+/- 5%) 5VDC power with 0.5A min DC current
- Deliver the power through a small 0.65mm diameter center pin / 2.6mm outer diameter DC plug (like the one often used in cellular phone AC adaptor)
- Provide the correct polarity with ''plus'' on the OUTER part of the plug and ''minus'' (ground) on the small center pin of the DC jack.
Trying to use an AC/DC adaptor that doesn''t follow all these three requirements may destroy the HDFury. This external HDFury powering option is only needed in one or both the following situations:
- The DVI or HDMI cable is using thin gauge copper wires and its length exceeds 5 meters (16 feet).
- The DVI or HDMI source is unable to deliver the 0.5A maximum current over its HDMI or DVI pin #14. This situation often occurs when HDFury is used with cheap DVD/HD players at 1080p60 mode.
|Question: oes the HDfury support 1080p/24fps found in next generation HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players? |
|Answer: Yes! The HDfury simply converts the input signal from DVI-D digital to RGBHV analog (and applies HDCP decryption if required). It doesn''t change the the resolution or refresh rate - it simply passes it through. As long as you stay under the 1080p/60 bandwidth requirement (ie: the 165Mhz pixel clock rate), it doesn''t care what the resolution or refresh rate is. |
|Question: I connected my HDfury but the image is shifted to the left. How do I fix it? |
|Answer: The picture is shifted to the left is normal when you connect HDfury for the first time. Simply adjust your display''''''''s settings to shift the image back. This needs to only be done once. On some European CRT displays you will not be able to shift back far enough because of the US/Euro HD ''''''''porch'''''''' differences. If this affects you, switch your source to 60Hz to solve the problem. You can setup a new memory and it won''''''''t disturb any of your original settings. As the HDfury comes with his own EDID, you will always have the H position to adjust. For example, you can connect HDfury to your PC VGA screen, and you will see that the first time the picture is shifted to the left. You can then adjust this setting on your PC display, and it will be perfect. If you connect your computer back to the PC VGA screen, the image will centered as before! Your screen / display has memory functions to store your settings depending on the source. There is no other settings to adjust. |
|Question: My picture is cropped (cut off). How do I fix it? |
|Answer: See the last question. The image is likely only shifted slightly. The HDFury doesn''t process the incoming digital video stream to ''cut'' the image. The HDfury remains synchronous the the pixelclock of the digital video inputed (no process, no frame buffer, ....). It just converts the digital pixel data to analog, nothing else. If the picture is truly cropped, then, this is due to the source device. |
|Question: The black level (brightness) on my display device is constantly changing causing dark and light scenes to change in black level. How do I fix it? |
|Answer: Your display device may have poor black level clamping and you will therefore see this problem with any source device with or without the HDfury. If you have a way of adjusting it, try to adjust the ''Clamp'' setting of your display to ''H/C'' (horizontal/composite sync) mode rather than ''Auto''. Not all displays will have this setting. Many consumer displays will have this hidden in a service menu. |
|Question: Is the actual HDfury device used in the various packages the same or are there difference types of HDfury devices available? |
|Answer: There is only one type of HDfury converter available. The same one is used in every package. The various packages only differ in the types of extender cables and accessories offered. |

|Get the HDFuryII instead|
|Pros: well, it works to convert your HDCP source to analog at full HD rez|
Cons: the image on your TV is offset horizontally so you can't see the left edge, and the right side has a wide black bar. basically, the image is shifted to the left. this is an acknowledged design flaw of the HDFuryI, which they fixed in the more expensive HDFuryII

|Does what it says. It worked at my first try.|
I used that to connect a Fit-PC2 to a old VGA display. The HDfury availability is better than their Fit-VGA. However, I needed a few gender changers.
