HDMI to VGA adapter with audio

Tue Feb 27, 2018 11:50 pm

I have an extra VGA LCD monitor that I could use for my Retropie gaming console. I'd need an HDMI to VGA adapter with an audio jack and I think it'll have to be an active model.

Any of you gone this way and what did you get? Thanks.

If it helps I got one of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Vention ... 0.0.MEKJvr

Works a treat. I got the one with audio and power. It has so far worked fine without the additional power lead connected and this is with audio in use too. The audio drives headphones well too. Cost just over £5 inc. delivery.
