    Just wondering if anyone could tell me if there's any way to connect a PC VGA output to a HD TV's HDMI input?
    Have looked around and can't see any cables that do this. (Only HDMI>VGA which is the wrong way)
    I was thinking there must be some way to do it but have no idea how to go about it... could anyone make a suggestion?
    My girlfriend has a desktop which she wants to connect to her TV sometimes to save buying a screen seperately.
    The TV only has HDMI or SCART inputs and the tower only has a VGA output.

    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    Yes there is, google hdmi2av, you will need a special converter box. They have different models. The one I posted I bought for my dads old ass tv to take hdmi but they have vga2hdmi too.

    As you are going from VGA, why bother with HDMI? Just go SCART.
