As part of a retrofitting project for my church, I purchased a variety of equipment. The minister has a recent model iPad with Lightning port. I purchased a Lightning to HDMI adapter to get sound and video. The church's overhead projector, for which there is no budget to replace right now, only handles a VGA input or composite input. I purchased a Belkin HDMI to VGA adapter that has a 3.5 mm output so I could patch into the audio system's soundboard.
When I hooked this up to my iPad, it initially wanted to work. It didn't though. Nothing would play through the lash-up of cables. I've tested the cables individually for the roles they play and they work. Together they cannot get me VGA video and sound to run to a mixing board.
Is there a way to accomplish this through cabling? Am I missing something or is this a dead end?
