Need composite to vga converter

Hi, I have the following scenario here. Have a „WD TV HD Media Player“ http://www.westerndigital.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=734 and, for selecting mp3's to play, I prefer to use monitor rather than TV. I need to go from composite output of media player to VGA input of monitor. I only need to display the audio menu so video quality isn't a major factor. My question...I found this device... „Geniatech V2V Pro“ http://www.geniatech.com/pa/v2vpro.asp . Has anybody any experience of said device..its quite cheap, around EU33 or so. Would really appreciate any help here.

  1. it might be easier to go through hdmi to dvi and use an adapter from dvi to vga. there is a loss in quality. its alot cheaper too. hdmi cable $15 adpater $3 if you dont have on already. I think i have like 10.

    Just one question...HDMI output is digital, VGA input is analog, so where's the conversion done?
    And thanks..it would be much less expensive
  3. thats a good question? IDK I can try it when I get home. Does your monitor have a DVI port
  4. Darn after some more thought it wont work. You are right. it looks like its a good product. it was the cheapest video to vga converter i found. Amazon has a 4star rating on with 23 reviews. Good Luck. If your computer monitor has a dvi input you can just use the hdmi to dvi cable
