VGA to HDMI Converter Instructions

posted in: Infographs | 4

One of the most popular questions we get asked is “How do I connect my laptop to a TV?” Maybe you want to watch Netflix on the big screen or show some home videos you have stashed away on your hard drive. Whatever your motivation, it’s a lot simpler than you think, and we do it here at FireFold on a regular basis. One option is to use a VGA to HDMI Converter. This little converter comes with 3.5mm audio, so you can transmit both video and sound from your computer to your TV. Just to illustrate how easy it is to use this converter, we put together a little visual aid for you.

This handy little converter from FireFold allows you to connect your laptop or PC to an HDTV or HD monitor. It transmits video via the VGA connector and audio via a 3.5mm connector. It is powered by the computer’s USB port, so no additional power supply is required.

    Will it work in reverse? I want to convert HDMI to VGA and audio. I am connecting an HDMI-only Roku3 to a computer monitor that doesn’t have audio, so I need to separate via external speakers.

      Unfortunately, it will not. You will be down-converting, and those types of converters are usually a little pricier. We don’t currently have any at FireFold.
