Monitor

Wed Jun 26, 2019 12:15 pm

Dear Sir or Madam,

Could you please let me know if a monitor without an HDMI port can be used with a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, as a display? If yes, I request you to provide me with the names of development boards made by Raspberry Pi which will serve this purpose.

Yours Sincerely,

Lakshya Nahar

If you have a VGA monitor, you can use it via a HDMI to VGA adapter.

You could check if this will run with your version of the Pi https://uk.pi-supply.com/products/gert- ... spberry-pi

Drawback is that it uses most of the GPIO pins and is a kit

What monitor did you have in mind, and what inputs does it support?

The OP states made by Raspberry Pi, so answered accordingly, if I am supposed to be a mind reader then I have missed my vocation in life.....

You can use any DVI-D monitor with a (micro)HDMI to DVI-D cable, no "converter box needed" just a cable !

With the VGA666 HAT you can connect any VGA monitor directly, or you can use a (micro)HDMI to VGA converter box. The PI can power such a box without the need for an external supply, directly from the (micro)HDMI output port.

The 3.5mm A/V jack output provides not only stereo sound, but with the right cable, also PAL or NTSC composite video output.

the sticky post "pictorial buyers guide" in beginners has more information.

DVI is the same as HDMI (except it does not support sound). So a HDMI to DVI cable will work on many older monitors that do not have HDMI sockets. If the monitor only has a VGA socket, then it may be possible to buy a HDMI to VGA adapter cable but they don't all work, depending on how the monitor supports VGA and whether the adapter is powered.

If all you have is an old-style television then the Raspberry Pi also has a composite video output.

This is DVI:

Different interpretations, I guess. But now that I have re-read the OP you may be correct.

And yes, the number of questions we get asked here that require psychic abilities to answer far exceeds that of any other forum I've been on. ;)
