I've seen a number of threads about connecting a VGA computer to a TV with HDMI.
My TV hasn't got HDMI input, only VGA, it's the laptop that has HDMI output. I have an HDMA to VGA lead plugged between them, but no signal is detected at the TV.
I just want to watch the laptop on the TV screen.
Why is there no signal detected and can I do anything to get it working?

HDMI does not produce the analog signals required for VGA devices to work.

You will need a converter like this one in order for it to work.

Thank you.
I've sent the lead back. Got a refund.
They must have known it was useless!
