    You won’t be able to go from VGA (Analog signal) to either DVI or HDMI (both digital) without some kind of converter box. For example like this one: http://www.monoprice.com/products/search.asp?keyword=4629&x=0&y=0

    You can go from Digital to Analog easy, but going from Analog to Digital like you want to do takes different equipment.
