Hi have connected my Mini to my wifes PC screen so it has a screen for now, as we dont have one for it as i usually remote into the Mini... but when i connec the Mini via HDMI, a splitter box so here laptop can see the screen, the Mini doesnt show on the screen. NO signal recieved.


the HDMI cable has a HDMI to VGA Adapter on it to allow it to connect to the splitter box, would this be disrupting the signal?


i know the splitter box works as the signal from the laptop gets through and arrives at the screen.

HDMI is digital, VGA is analog. Makes me wonder what "adapter" this is. If it's not a proper converter (requiring some electronics inside and external power), then you must not expect it to do anything for you.
