Cables for Lumagen Vision HD

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was looking at getting a used VIsion HD to convert different inputs for an older Sony HDTV that only has a component input, no HDMI. It has a nice 1080i picture but I would like to connect some other inputs to it such as the VGA output from a laptop as well as a WD Media Player. In reading the manual for a Lumagen, it looks like it is capable of taking RGB and digital inputs and then converting them to a YPbPr output through the output DVI connector. My question is will the cables on monoprice work with the Vision HD?

For example, can I use this DVI to component cable to connect the Lumagen to my HDTV?

I'm not sure how I posted that before I was done, but to continue...

Similarly, can I use this cable to connect the VGA from my laptop to the Lumagen?

The dvi-i cable to component certainly looks like it will work.

The other one will not. That will only work if your PC can output component video on its VGA socket. If it doesn't and only outputs RGBHV then you need an HD15 to 5 RCA cable. The lumagen accepts RGBHV using one set of component inputs plus the two Composite video inputs for H and V

Thanks, I was wondering how the sync signals would be input into the Lumagen, I missed that in the manual. It doesn't look like they have a HD15 to 5 RCA but I could use my HD15 to BNC cable that I have and just get several BNC to RCA adapters I guess. Thanks for the help!
