Has anyone out there tried to convert the DVI output on the
Beagleboard to VGA? I've done this before on another project and it
worked very well, but I doesn't seems to be the case on the
Any suggestions or ideas why it is not working?
Here's my setup:
Beagleboard -> HDMI-to-DVI cable -> DVI gender changer -> DIV-toVGA
adapter -> VGA screen
Keep in mind that the Beagle outputs DVI-D and not DVI. There is no VGA component in the signal. So, you will need to convert from DVI-D to VGA. I have no looked to find one of these, but I am sure they are out there, although I would think they would be a little expensive.
Same price as a pretty decent dvi-d lcd at newegg..
That will explain it. I have a DVI-A to VGA adapter!
If anyone else out there is interested in converting DVI signales,
here's a site that would help you decide what adapter you need:
As pointed out, DVI-D is digital, whereas VGA is analogue. So a simple
cable adaptor won't do. I have successfully tested HDfury: http://www.hdfury.com
, which is not cheap, though.
I try to get VGA output using a HDfury gamer edition without any luck. I tested it with a DVI-D output from a notebook and the cable works OK, but Beagleboard → HDfury gamer edition → Standar monitor doesn’t work. It only work about 15 seconds and then the signal goes out.
Any suggestions? I try this setup about two or three months ago… maybe a Kernel issue?
What HDfury do you use? What Kernel do you use?
