Video Card Output: SVGA versus HDMI?
A wee bit of a dilemma
I have a LED TV that has all the inputs, baseband, RF, composite and VGA (RGB), two HDMI and One USB
My computer is older (by today's standards) and it has a VGA out put for the monitor. I rigged up a splitter or "Y" connection so I can see on the TV what ever is on the monitor via the VGA input on the TV. Every thing works 100%.
These 2 systems are for the home office and I used to have a smaller cupboard and the smaller TV was inside the cupboard. I made a small remodel of the home office, so that smaller cupboard is gone and now I want to get a larger TV possibly a 32 inch or a 40 inch pending price. I find very few TVs have VGA input, there are some but rare. A few of the Best Buy people suggested that the HDMI works great for the computer to the TV. But I would have to buy a VGA to HDMI adaptor. Problems is, my computer only has a VGA output and no HDMI
I will eventually be buying a new computer, just not now/yet.
Do the newer computers (desk top and in my case a tower) use HDMI as a video-out instead of the VGA that I am used to.
Consider also that I have two monitors that have VGA only
Would you suggest that I go for the newer TV with HDMI and use the MDMI to VGA adapter
Open to suggestions, concepts and ideas
