Plugable Active HDMI to VGA 6ft (1.8m) Converter Cable Supporting up to 1920 x 1080 (60Hz) does it support the Raspberry Pi

Thought I would be able to use your cable to convert hdmi to vga on my raspberry pi but all I get is the monitor going to sleep.

Hi Remitdlo,

Thanks for posting. The HDMI output of the Raspberry is not able to reliably provide enough power to the converter chip in our HDMI-VGA cable, so unfortunately they are not compatible. We do our best to call this out in our product pages both on and

That said we certainly don’t want you stuck with a product you cannot use, and we offer a 30-day no-hassle return policy. Please reach out to us directly at and mention ‘Ticket 141592’ in the subject line and please include your Amazon Order ID number in the body (in the email only, don’t post it here) and we’ll get the return process started.
