Hello Out There. I'm running into an issue connecting two separate PC's which have VGA, to my TV which has HDMI. I have an adapter similar to this https://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIV15G65U0741&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleBizMKPL-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleBizMKPL-PC-_-pla-_-Accessories+-+General-_-9SIV15G65U0741&gclid=Cj0KCQjw7Z3VBRC-ARIsAEQifZTxpRpjZ7AE_1cPo04t9RYmoTa0mgiGp50Q2oe5nrHbJOLQLlZRU5waAlwREALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds but still not working. Any ideas on what i'm doing wrong?

im not positive here but......

 

the way i am reading the description of that product it sounds like it is HDMI to VGA converter.....

 

basically your trying to use it backwards....the opposite way VGA to HDMI.....

 

maybe it wont work that way????

Yours is used to go from a HDMI port of the PC to a VGA monitor.

 

You need an adapter like this. The USB is used to power the device.

Keep in mind I am not saying it will work but its worth a shot, I know converting one display type to another can be annoying.
