I just bought a new computer that has an HDMI input and an HDMI output port. I have a 16 camera surveillance system that is connected to my old computer's video card using two VGA cables. The video card has two VGA input ports. I want to use my new computer as my main source for my camera feed. Can one HDMI input port handle 2 VGA cables? My new computer is the Lenovo A530. This computer does not have any VGA input ports. Please help. Thank you.

I dont think one HDMI port can handle 2 VGA cables.  Check out this product below.

OK so for example I connect my two VGA cables to this device and this device connects to the HDMI input on my computer?
