No video with VGA to HDMI

    When I connect a pc with the VGA to HDMI I get "NO SIGNAL".

    It works for the same PC on the HDMI port.

    The VGA to HDMI works with a different monitor.
    I tried 3 different brands of HDMI cables.

    The VGA to HDMI adapter (came with the TinyPilot) works to a regular monitor but not to TinyPilot.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thank you

      Hi @zalmyr, I'm sorry you are having this issue. Thanks for opening a new thread.

      In the logs you uploaded, I can see the following error:

      Jun 13 18:55:12 tinypilot ustreamer[588]: -- ERROR [258.014    stream] -- Unable to start capturing: Invalid argument

      That usually happens when the target system is outputting a higher framerate than the TinyPilot can handle.

      • Is it possible to reduce the frame rate on the target system? (some motherboards have options for this in the BIOS)
      • If that doesn't work, can you try reducing the resolution on the target system?

          This only happens with the VGA to HDMI which came with the TinyPilot, the default settings aren't supported?

          I need this so I can send a field tech to connect it, having him change settings in bios kind of defeats the purpose.
