What release/version that supports HDMI

I just received my HDMI to VGA adapter and could not get it to display anything on the monitor.

I have flashed the BBB to:
Linux version 4.4.30-ti-r64 (root@a2-imx6q-wandboard-2gb) (gcc version 4.9.2 (Debian 4.9.2-10) ) #1 SMP Fri Nov 4 21:23:33 UTC 2016

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 8.6 (jessie)
Release: 8.6
Codename: jessie

I configured the setup as follows:
External 5 VDC (1 A) PS to BBB
The BBB host USB connected to a USB Hub (the hub has no problems with another PC)
The USB hub is powered by a 5 VDC 3 A external PS

The HDMI adapter connected to the BBB micro HDMI connector
The HDMI VGA conned to the monitor. ( the monitor has no problems)
Connected the miniUSB connector to the HDMI adapter from the hub.

The BBB works ok and I can connect using miniUSB to PC and using SSH.

I did notice that it seems the monitor screen changes to a different background color (almost black)
and the monitor activity light changes to a solid ON am I am thinking the monitor ‘see’s’ the VGA from
the the adapter.

QUESTION: Do I have the correct release (Jesse) and what else should I be doing ?

It needs to be an active converter, in other words converts the digital signals to VGA.The analog signals are not provided on the HDMI connector.
