I want to use my computer Benq lcd monitor to watch TV by connecting it to a full HD satellite receiver set top box. My lcd monitor only has a VGA input. So I bought an HDMI to VGA cable, connected the HDMI to the receiver, and connected the VGA to the monitor. It did not work. The message on my monitor says "no cable connected".
Any idea how to get this to work? do I need extra hardware? what am I missing here?
