More about active passive
  1. Without a power source, I would guess passive.
    Does it matter?
  2. it matters i need an active converter so i can convert from hdmi (which is digital) to VGA (which is analog)
  3. btw there is another adapter that is active and doesnt have a power source yet its active
  4. Your link shows a hdmi to vga adapter.
    It would not work if it was missing something for a simple hdmi port to a vga monitor
    If you needed something to additionally convert the hdmi audio output that is something else.
  5. Look i have a VGA monitor and i want to buy a Gtx 1050 ti which has HDMI ,DVI-D etc so i need a active convertor there is this one aswell http://www.anhoch.com/product/38558/hdmi-to-vga-and-audio-adapter-cablexpert idk which one to buy and if either one is active
