Does anyone know where I can find a DVI-D male to VGA hd15 female adapter?

I ordered one online, and it turned out to not work. My DVI connection on my tv is the 25 pin, (3 rows of 8 and the straight part) and I have the Xbox 360 VGA cable which is a 15 pin cable.

I can't find one that will do this online anywhere. I thought about running to my local Wal-Mart or Best Buy but I seriously doubt I will find one. Do they not make this type of adapter? I am seeing all types of others, but nothing that is 25pin DVI to 15pin VGA.

Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help!

No such thing! DVI-D is digital and VGA is analog.

A DVI-A (analog) OR DVI-I (both analog and digital) to VGA would work as long as your DVI device supports analog.

Just use the component connections from the Xbox, unless your set has a VGA in, you can't use the VGA cable.

As pointed out, VGA is analog and DVI-D is digital, to convert from VGA to DVI-D you would need something like this - http://www.ramelectronics.net/html/D...er.html#vgadvi
