HDMI

Hy all,sorry if this was already answered i searched the forum but didnt find the answer.
What i try to achieve is to connect my mediabox (which has HDMI output) to my LG 22" monitor (which has only VGA input)
I already have a DVI-I (male) to vga (female) adapter which works fine (from video card to monitor).
My question is can i use double adapters like :
- media box -> HDMI (male) to DVI-I (female) ->DVI-I (male) to VGA (female) -> monitor VGA (male) ?

In theory it should work but i did buy today a HDMI to DVI-I connecter but when i opened it up it was DVI-D it costed me 11$ :sweat: so no more costy theory :)) can someone tell me if it's working or im trying something impossible?
Thank you for your time

  1. My understanding is VGA is an analog signal. To get the benefits you will need a costly converter box.

    Something like this:

  2. There are three types of DVI connections: DVI-Digital, DVI-Analog, and DVI-Integrated.
