Do HDMI to VGA converters work well or best avoided? This is for an Apple TV v3, which is black in colour and supports up to 1080p resolution (according to the specs). There are no other outputs and the school do not have a HDMI projector.
Apple TV v1 was white in colour and supported HDMI and RCA out. Apple TV v2, black in colour supports HDMI 720p/1080i resolution only.
I have advised to replace the projector with a projector which includes HDMI input natively. The alternative is HDMI to VGA, but I can see two problems with this -
Surely converting the signal, the resolution would still be 1360 x 768, so the projector would have to support it?
And secondly, you'd then have to 'faff' with audio, as of course HDMI delivers video and audio.
What do you think?
