    I don't need the VGA, just the audio converter. Will it work for that?
    A shopper on May 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It's VGA to HDMI, you don't need the VGA?? There isn't enough info to answer properly. VGA doesn't carry audio, so you have to feed audio to the HDMI. This won't work in reverse.
    Can I connect a Computer Monitor with this device ?
    A shopper on Apr 3, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. I purchased this specifically to connect it to an older (VGA) computer monitor. I have a Raspberry Pi computer, which is a small, credit card-sized computer with an HDMI output that I used this to connect to an older VGA computer monitor and it works just fine. Keep in mind, however that unlike with HDMI, you will not transmit sound as VGA does not transport sound, only video.
    Will the signal still work if you're going from HDMI to rca audio?
    A shopper on Jan 3, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: This device converts the analog video (VGA) and stereo audio to a digital HDMI video signal with embedded audio. If you plug the HDMI directly into a TV, then the audio will be transmitted through the TV's speakers. If you are trying to take a HDMI source and break out the embedded digital audio to a stereo analog output; then you would need a HDMI audio extractor, such as the Blackbird 4K Series 2-channel HDMI Audio Extractor (product ID: 13349).
    Will this also take an HDMI signal from a computer and output VGA and audio?
    John W on Mar 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No. It is an active device that encodes the vga and audio into the HDMI standard. It only works one way.
    Does It Work on my Raspberry Pi 3?
    New User U on Apr 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This converter would not require any drivers, should your Raspberry Pi 3 support VGA output and have a separate 3.5mm audio output then it would work just fine. You would just use a 3.5mm to 2 RCA cable for the audio support.

    Should you require additional assistance, please reach out to our technical support team with a detailed question via any of the methods available here:

    Doesn't work
    I had received this today in the mail and was looking forward to finally being able to use my dreamcast with it. it simply just doesn't work at all with it, no matter what's done. it isn't the vga cable as that works perfectly fine when tested on an old monitor lying around, tested multiple hdmi cables so that's not the issue. when having it on, the picture flickers on and off slowly, making it worthless to have. looking around, I've heard this work with a person regarding the system but at the same time quite a few have the same issue I have. so with that said, i'm unsure if i ended up with a bad one or if this doesn't support the game system and the person that got it working has something else going on.

    CONS: endless flickering on and off

    I bought this to connect my Dreamcast, via the VGA box, to an HDMI input on my TV and it worked right out of the box. I'm very happy with this product.

    Not Dreamcast compatible
    Just in case this assists any one else in the future, this box isn't compatible with the Dreamcast VGA output signal (480p 60Hz). Neither my TV (Samsung LED B6000) nor receiver (Onkyo TX-NR809) could interpret the HDMI signal coming out of the converter.

    For what it's worth, the receiver's own VGA input couldn't receive the signal as well, yet the TV's VGA input could.

    Good for a paper weight.
    Does not work with my Panasonic TV.

    Hooked up up using the simple instructions in the manual.
    Ran through all the output settings, tried multiple HDMI input on the TV, tried multiple VGA sources.

    RMA'd for a replacement,

    New one is no different than the 1st. Could have bought a new video card for PC by now that supported HDMI.

    Might stick to just cables from now on at Monoprice.

    PROS: None

    CONS: Cost of RMA + Original order I could have got an HDMI video card.

    Great Product
    This thing is amazing! I got it for watching blu-ray from my laptop to my 37 Olevia lcd. There is no delay at all and the picture is crystal clear. Amazing that it can convert analog HD to digital HD in real time. This devise does not natively support wide screen so you MUST ENFORCE CUSTOM RESOLUTIONS at the native resolution of your tv to get 16x9 resolutions. This is very simple to do in the graphics drivers for both Nvidea and ATI card (Im not sure with Intel drivers). Some blu-ray movies seemed a little too dark, but that was nothing that couldnt be fixed in the graphics drivers.

    For those people who couldnt get this to work. It was made for computers not cable boxes. You must adjust the custom resolution in the graphics drivers to not distort your picture as the devise isnt made to with the correct resolutions for 16x9 displays.

    Got it to work with Insignia 720p plasma
    I was skeptical if this would work on a 720p plasma based on other reviews for 720p of other brands (i.e. Panasonic), but I gave it a shot. When I first tried plugging into my Insignia, no matter what the display resolution/refresh rate I got "mode not supported." I noticed the HDMI port on my TV was listed (on the actual TV screen) as HDMI/DVI where the other just said HDMI. So I tried changing it to the 1st HDMI port and it works perfectly. I put it back into the other HDMI port and it does not work (which looks the same and is not labeled differently on the back of the TV). Any other input (i.e. DVD player) works fine in that second HDMI input, so it is not the input.

    I thought HDMI was HDMI, but apparently this adapter needs some other capability besides just HDMI (HDMI/DVI) and the Insignia has it on only 1 of its HDMI inputs.

    PROS: works, price

    CONS: on/off switch would be nice, only works on 1 of my HDMI inputs to my TV (the one that says on the TV: HDMI/DVI)

    Wouldn't work for me
    Attempting to go from VGA on computer to HDMI TV. Would not work no matter what resolution I selected on the TV. The TV displayed "not supported".

    Monoprice readily offered a refund on this item, but they refused to pay return shipping since it was a "compatibility problem". If it won't work, it won't work. Is it compatibility or is it a defective device? I have no idea and I had to pay $15.00 to return it.

    PROS: Looks pretty nice

    CONS: Didn't work

    Monoprice would not pay return shipping

    Not Working !
    We tried all the standard VGA resolutions on 3 of our laptop PCs including 640x480,800x600,1024x768 and 1280x1024 to test with Toshiba 47 LCD TV. We can only get to see a flash of Windows XP booting screen and then the screen turns black without any picture.

    very bad product
    save your money. don't buy this item. if you get stuck with a store credit...you actually pay for shipping again on whatever new item you get. basically...store credit means you lose about $10 in shipping in the next item.

    PROS: well its does adapt vga to hmdi when it works

    CONS: went through 3 since july. they all went bad the exact same way. the picture becomes coarsely pixilated so that its practically unviewable.

    4629 - VGA & R/L Stereo Audio to HDMI® Converter w/ DC Adapter
    I bought one of these about 2 years ago, and didn't get a chance to use it until about 6 months ago. When I connected it up to my computer VGA and my HDTV (very simple connection), I got no picture (black screen). So I contacted Monoprice to see if I could still get an exchange or refund, but they said it was too late. That's understandable. So I went ahead and purchased another one. same problem with the 2nd one. I called Monoprice support, and the person I on-line chatted with was no help, in fact they were kind of short with me. So here I am with 2 of these paperweights now. Monoprice has always been good to me until this. What happened Monoprice? Don't waste your $ on this item.

    PROS: None

    CONS: Doesn't work
