This simple question has required about 8 hours of research on the internet and 4 failed attempts with different pieces of hardware, haha.
I am trying to adapt a VGA output on an old laptop to a DVI input on an almost as old tv. However, almost every adapter out there assumes that you want to go the other way around. (adapting a DVI video card to an old VGA CRT monitor) Will it work the other way?
I've learned that a DVI-D adapter will only work on a digital signal, so I need a DVI-I...but the product names always state "DVI to VGA", not the other way around as I'd like it. Does the signal traffic flow both ways if I just plug it in?
Will single link DVI vs. dual link DVI make a difference? Any other hidden considerations?
Thanks in advance!
