Folks...Not really sure where this question belongs, so if it is in the wrong place please say so and/or move it.
I work with a local senior citizen organization. I frequently use my laptop with their overhead Infocus X16 (t-180) projector for slide shows and training sessions. That projector uses a standard VGA cable between my laptop and the suspended overhead unit.
The problem is that I recently changed laptops (HP Envy 15) and that new laptop does not have a VGA output, only HDMI. I purchased a HDMI => VGA converter unit which works perfectly with the VGA input on our Sony Bravia TV.
However, when I connect to the Infocus, it initially looks like it is working but then randomly it disconnects and reconnects. A stable connection is never maintained.
