    have a dell laptop inspiron and all I see is a VGA port on back.(of course Dell has been going the way of the Dinosaur, for a while now) and I want to connect it to a Sanyo 50 HDTV. It has 3 HDMI. So I order an Adapter and a 10′ VGA/audio cable. Nothing happens.
    So now I read that I need a converter box and some HDMI cable. Not only that but the picture may not fit after ordering the extra stuff unless the converter box is “scalable” , to stretch the picture to fit on the HDTV screen. So, I need a VGA to HDMI Converter box(not an HDMI to VGA) and does that scaler feature knock a $20 converter box out of contention? I’d like to do this so that I don’t have download Korean dramas and record to DVD just watch. Korean Dramas are much better than American TV, it is worth doing to get the family to sit an watch, but now I see we could watch w/out d/l and subbing and all. I would like to do this for a bit less than taking them out to McDonalds. Any ideas or products to put this together would be appreciated.
