These work well. No sound but you can pull that off elsewhere. Under a buck each.

FWIW – I bought an HDMI to DVI converter from Mousser for $21 that works
well at 1920x1080... but no sound. Mouser also lists a Tripplite HDMI to DVI
(with sound) converter the google says is also sold by Walmart for $24.
Tripplite MODEL NUMBER: P131-06N

Most posts have covered, it but heres my
The more expensive HDMI - VGA converters have scalers built into them. You
prob. won't need to go to that expense. The cheaper Chinese converters can be
used as long as you keep the HDMI resolution below or close to the VGA monitors
native resolution. ie. Its no good setting the HDMI output ( via config.txt ) to
1920 x 1080 if the monitors native resolution is 1024 x 768 as it won't show on
As to their audio output, on the breakout ( 3.5mm ) for the HDMI embedded
audio signal. If you are "interfacing" to a radio just use the onboard audio
jack instead. Otherwise set " config.text " for audio over HDMI.

Thanks and 73!
