    NOTE: The AC551A is not a scaler or scan converter. This means that the resolution of the video signal at the HDMI output is the same as the input signal. Most HDMI-enabled displays do not support the full complement of PC resolutions and are only designed to handle HDTV input formats of 480i or 480p at 60 Hz, 576i or 576p at 50 Hz, 720p at 60 Hz, or or 1080i at 60 Hz.

    This means that if you set your PC at a resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA), your display may not show the HDMI image. In this case, you have to set your PC's resolution to either 640 x 480 at 60 Hz (VGA interpreted as 480p), 800 x 600 at 50 Hz (SVGA interpreted as 576p), or 1280 x 720 at 60 Hz (WXGA interpreted as 720p).

    This product works with:
  • HDMI Cable (EVHDMI01-001-MM)
  • VGA Video Cable with Ferrite Core (EVNPS06-0003-MM)
  • Deluxe Dual Audio Cable (EJ510-0005-MM0)
