Gents, I have a tiny church that needs the addition of an additional television. The existing TVs are a few years old, and they run a VGA output laptop into a Monoprice VGA distro amp, and then out to the TVs. They DO NOT have the budget to switch to HDMI, I've asked.
So finding a 70" TV with a VGA input is almost impossible. Philips still makes one in their commercial lineup, but the price might put us out of the competition.
So the alternative is to use a generic VGA to HDMI converter. Since everything is Powerpoint, there's no HDCP to worry about, ever.
I'll change the Monoprice 3 way distro amp to an Extron 4 way, then run the VGA to HDMI adapter, into a CAT5 Tx/Rx extender, as the run is about 60'.
Do the generic converters work that I can find on eBay? Has anyone tried them before? I haven't, and want to make sure there's a fair chance of this working before I spring on this.
