    Ok, hears the plan "to kill two birds with one stone"

    If I buy the official Apple Digital AV Adapter, and then use a cable like this ( ) to make it into a VGA signal. I know that the cables fit each other, but do you think it would work. I just I like the HDMI for films (from iTunes and Rentals) but I need the VGA for Keynote for presentations (obviously)

    Thanks for any replies

    I couldn't say for sure but I wouldn't think so. HDMI uses a digital signal whilst VGA uses an analogue signal. Of course this is a theoretical assumption on my part.

    Did you read the listing that you posted the link to? In short, no.

    As stated above, it's not just a matter of getting the right connectors. One is analog and the other is digital.
