Problem HDMI to VGA Blu-ray

I would like to connect my Samsung BD-C6900 Blu-ray HDMI output to my Infocus X1 projector VGA input...

I'd tried two converters HDMI to VGA without success:
- HP NP031AA
- Startech HDMI2VGA

They don't work with the projector neither a PC monitor. The only thing, is that at the Blu-ray start up, I can see "Samsung..." on the screen, and then nothing.

I don't understand :(
Any idea?
Thanks

  1. It's probably because neither of those converters are HDCP compliant.

  2. They say "Compliant with HDMI 1.3, HDCP 1.1, and DVI":

    Is it enough?
  3. Try connecting your Blu-Ray player to the projector using a composite (yellow) cable, just to see if you can get an image (other than the "Samsung" loading image).

  4. Yes, there is no problem with the composite.

    Next thing I would try is playing a standard DVD with an HDMI to VGA converter (this assumes your Blu-Ray player can play standard DVDs). If that works, them it would seem to me that the problem lies in the HDCP compliance. If not, then it would seem to be the adapter itself (check this by playing a standard DVD via the composite cable).

  6. I think that's a HDCP compliance problem. DVD is playing well with the composite and doesn't work with the converter.

    I don't know if it will be better with the HDFury II (http://www.hdfury.com/)????

    Thanks for your help.
