Chromecast Not Working With HDMI to VGA Adapter
« on: May 11, 2016, 07:54:57 AM »
Hi,

I work in a school and we have recently purchased Chromecast's for all of the classrooms. Some of our projectors do not have HDMI ports, so we purchased HDMI to VGA adapter ( I will link the exact product below) to see if they would work, unfortunately they don't. Does anyone have any ideas into why the Chromecast is not liking the Adapter as we do not want to go spending thousands of pounds to update our projectors that are working perfectly fine!

Kind regards

You might need to look on line for a powered converter as opposed to a simple adapter.

I found this on Amazon. I don't know if this would work for you, but this is what I was thinking.
