Rated 5 out of 5 by bdreyer from DVI Female to HD15 Male AdaperI bought my wife a MACBOOK PRO so that she could get instruction at the store.

That's why I ordereed the adapter from Cables to Go

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kahrpistols from Watch Out!Make sure that you're converting a digital signal into a digital signal. I bought this item thinking it could convert an analog signal (VGA) to digial (DVI). I was wrong.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dan the tech guy from Did Not do what I expectedTrue DVI and VGA are not compatible formats and this device did nothing to help that. I had expected it to convert the DVI signal to a usable VGA signal but it needs to be converted before arriving at the the DVI end or after exiting the VGA end before a VGA device can use the signal. This only allows the two types of cable to be connected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BCDDS from It didn't workI hoped to have this adapter run a new Dell second monitor on a Dell desktop running dual displays. The new monitor does not have a DVI input, but does have VGA and HDMI. I was hoping to solve the problem using this product. Unfortunately, the monitor was not able to detect any input on the VGA . I'm back to square 1.

Can I use this for my computer that only has a vga output for the monitor, to send the video to my tv? I already have an adapter to go from DVI to HDMI on my tv. My computer does not have a hdmi, or a DVI output though
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately this adapter can only be used for analog signals. This will not be able to send the signal to the HDMI input on the TV. For this application I would recommend our part number 40010.
