How the Gefen EXT-VGA-2-DVISN works:

Connect the supplied VGA (M-F) cable to the input side of the Scaler Box. Then connect the DVI monitor or projector to the DVI output of the box. The converter generates the compatible analog to digital conversion signals to make the connection between the analog input and the digital output work. Manual control of the conversion box can be done through the buttons on the unit or through the optional IR remote control.
