No video from HDMI

by dougm on Sun Dec 02, 2012 10:43 pm

can anyone tell me if this adapter: ... 00_s00_i01

will work to convert the RasPi HDMI video to VGA?

I've loaded 2012-10-28-wheezy-raspbian.img to a 32GB SD card and when I apply power (should be plenty of power, coming straight from a standalone PC power supply) the activity light blinks for a while and the monitor comes out of sleep but no video is displayed. I tried on two separate monitors, an old NEC and a newer Dell.

Are there any troublehsooting tips I can follow? Failing that is there a known good HDMI-->VGA adapter I can get?

Unfortunately I don't have anything in the house that will take composite video as an input.

Thank you,


update: I cross posted this to the Raspberry Pi forum, I'll let you know if I get a resolution (no pun intended). But don't let that stop you from making suggestions :-)
