Hi all,

I do not have hdmi monitor, so planning to get dongle for vga monitor.

But the dongle state it need a driver to work, and provide only Windows driver. The VGA box however, is plug and play.

Anyone using the dongle?

Tks.
I've ordered 8 of the following:

I force mine to use the HDMI connection at 1280x1024 60Hz resolution.

#### nano /boot/config.txt ####
## Change Video Resolution for HDMI to VGA ##

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output
hdmi_force_hotplug=1

# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=35


Hope this can help you.
