    vga monitor to hdmi comuter active bidirectional?

    I purchased a VGA (monitor) to HDMI (laptop) adapter that results with the monitor message 'Input not supported'.

    I'm now reading that what I should have (and don't know if I do since the adapter doesn't say) is a bidirectional active adapter.

    Searching I'm finding bidirectional but not active also. The adapter is a Moread made in China. The website is not expecting customers--useless.

    I'm fine purchasing another adapter but need to understand where I went wrong and what different must I specify??

    Could you just tell us what monitor it is, little more simple that way instead of we have to guess all the time?

    And the censorship try to prevent me for posting this link in a proper way....
    This should work.

    From HDMI to VGA it is more complicated, there is some adapters but it is troublesome because VGA is analog while HDMI is a digital Audio/video interface.

    I think you should go for the first one, DVI-D to HDMI.
    Here it is, you need 24pins DVI.
    BENFEI DVI to HDMI, Bidirectional DVI (DVI-D) to HDMI Male to Female Adapter with Gold-Plated Cord 2 Pack is good.

    But be aware of the female and male pins!
    Always choose cable instead of adapter if you are able to.
