I have a setup where I have a DVD player connected to a projector using an HDMI to VGA adapter. The DVD player has the HDMI output and the projector only has VGA input. The picture keeps going out on and off in not so normal intervals. It is like the projector does not sense input for a short period. Any idea why this would happen?
Bad cables or bad HDMI to VGA adapter. You can eliminate some things if you can connect a laptop to the VGA cable without an adapter.
A MACbook laptop played fine with same DVD. We are planning to try some other adapters. I did try 1 other adapter and got no video at all. Should I need a special adapter? I don't want to purchase then return a bunch of them if I don't need to.
