I’m using a pair of HDMI-VGA converters to connect my work laptop, via a docking station (and DVI-HDMI converters - one port is DVI-I, one is DVI-D), to the VGA ports of my monitors (AOC e2250Swda).
The result is usable but washed out - the fine grey background grids on tools like gliffy, or most of the detail on Google maps, or the grey highlighting that many tools use to show focus, disappears altogether on the monitors connected with these converters. If I replace one of them with a VGA lead directly to the laptop (it only has a single VGA out) the image looks as it should. No amount of monitor adjustment helps. Digital inputs to these monitors from the docking station are also fine.
Is this an inherent aspect of these converters, or can it be resolved?
