How to set up your VGA to HDMI with Scaler PC to TV Converter
INSTRUCTIONS & NOTES:
1. Place the converter near your TV.
2. Plug the power supply (included) into an outlet and connect it to the converter.
A RED light on the converter indicates that the power supply is working.
3. Connect the converter to your HDTV with the 3' HDMI to HDMI cable (included).
4. Connect the 15' or 25' VGA with Audio cable (included) between your PC and the converter.
5. Make sure that the switch (RED arrow) is positioned LEFT next to the VGA jack.
6. After connecting the cables as shown in the diagram, follow these steps:
- Select HDMI as the input source on your TV. If you have multiple HDMI jacks select the input source that you are connected to (HDMI1, HDMI2, etc.). Most HDTVs will only allow you to select an input source that is detected. NOTE: Not all HDMI jacks are created equal. Some HDTVs require that a PC be connected to a specific HDMI jack.
- Activate the VGA output on your PC. Unless you have a desktop computer, you will have to do this each time you turn on your PC. How to activate your PC's external video output.
If you are not receiving video on your HDTV, check that your PC's video resolution is set to one of the converters supported resolutions (1280x960, 1280x800, 1280x768, 1280x720, 1024x768, 800x600 or 640x480). The quickest way to do this is by holding down the <CTRL> and <ALT> keys and then press <F12>. This will open your graphics properties where you can change the resolution. Or you can access your Display Properties via Start>>Control Panel.
NOTE: If you activate your PC's VGA output before the converter is plugged in and turned on, your PC's image may not fit on your HDTV's screen. This is because the converter must first communicate with your PC (via DDC) to automatically adjust the resolution. If your PC's image does not fit on your HDTV, simply use the Monitor Key Method to turn your PC's VGA output off and then on again.
