Using VGA cable for HDMI signal
I have a home theater challenge. My HDMI cable to my projector is bad (I bought a poor quality cable). I've tried many ways to run a new HDMI cable, but can't see to get it through ceiling.
I have a VGA cable that also runs to the projector from my Onkyo AVR. I'm wondering if I could use it with 2 adaptors:
1) HDMI -> VGA
2) VGA -> HDMI
At the moment I have to use the component RGB and would like to use HDMI for convenience (and 1080P quality) with the Onkyo receiver HDMI switching.
Would the HDMI/VGA....VGA/HDMI adaptors work? It isn't clear based on what I've read to so far.
Thanks for any guidance!
