No, it's the combo of monitor, Pi, adaptor and settings that's the problem. I'm glad your neewer adaptor is working. If you had another type of VGA monitor handy it would be interesting to see if it worked out of the box, like most of the rest of us experienced (more or less). I think you're the first person to report a total failure with this adaptor on here.thesynapseuk wrote:Not so. It's the RPi that's the problem.

Jesus, I could get a new HDMI monitor for almost that!boley wrote:http://www.kanexlive.com/atvpro has just been announced. It is targeted at the Apple TV but should work with the RPi. Handles audio also at just $59. I'm thinking it may be a good fit for giving presentations/training at locations where you don't know if the venue will support HDMI. This plus an RPi is still cheaper than an AppleTV, and the RPi can support AirPlay (a chief excuse for getting an AppleTV) which is great for presentations.
