my laptop has a VGA output, it doesnt have an HDMI output sadly :( But i want to connect it to my Sony HdTv. I saw a cable on eBay saying vga to hdmi. Can i use this? I also asked the seller about the cable and he said my laptop has to support digital signal output. How do i know if this cable will work.

thanks in advance!!!

The VGA signal is analog. So the ebay vendor is full of sh**t. The only good converters cost $50 to $80 US and they probably will not give you a full screen display on the TV. You will also not have any sound on the TV unless you run a wire from the Mic outlet on the laptop and the TV must accept the audio input (some will not activate the audio input port).

Good Luck
Thanks mate!! Really appreciate ur help :)
