Hi

I already have this VGA box which works fine:

Anyone had experience of this one?

Its looks a tidier solution so just curious if it works well.

Cheers.

I used that cable a few years back when I first started getting my DC back to the VGA->HDMI game.

Cable worked as promised, only issue with it is the lack of a VGA switch on it to get past some games which wont boot with the VGA flag on.


I still have the cable, but don't need it anymore as I now have an Internal VGA+3.5mm mod with a VGA switch on the back of the console. Goes VGA from the DC straight into my Atlona AT-HDVIEW HDMI scaler for properly timed 480P output.

Cheers, the box I have doesn't have a switch either. I may try one out given how cheap it is direct from China.

I own one of these exact cables. Very affordable and clear picture. Just only issue like mentioned above is lack of switch for non-VGA compatible games.
