Apologies if this is re-treading a topic that's been dealt with a thousand times (btw - I can't search the forums for "HDMI to VGA" as all the words are too common)...
I have just got my Rpi and would like to connect it to an old Dell 1024x768 VGA monitor for my boys to use and so that we don't have to use our one TV as the monitor.
I bought an Active HDMI>VGA adapter from Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Adapter-Laptop- ... roduct_top) which lists Rpi support but I can't get the display to work.
Rpi is fine as it works perfectly on the TV, connecting to the monitor I get signal detect (orange power light goes green) but no actual display; I suspect some sort of display config issue (if it were Windows I'd be thinking screen resolution...) but can't work out how to adjust it.
I assume there's a config.txt or something I should be altering, but where? And what settings do I need?
(FWIW, my last UNIX was SCO OpenServer V on i86 in about 2000, so I know roughly what I'm doing but have been stuck in Windows-land for FAR too long...)
All help appreciated; many thanks
