    Got a new Surface RT but having difficulty in finding the compatible cable output from micro HDMI port to VGA signal in order to export video to projector. The official cable (adaptor) from Microsoft is not available as below link:
    Microsoft Store - Buy Surface VGA Adapter

    I tried the cheap adaptor micro HDMI to VGA but the screen becomes unresponsive

    I had the adaptor micro HDMI to HDMI and it's working great when connecting to LCD but i wonder if i can use the converter from HDMI to VGA to use for projector, anyone try this? Just afraid that it's not enough power supply for the converter in this way

    Hope there is a solution, just want to use the surface in working and the need for connecting to projector is mandatory

    I bought my Surface VGA adapter at Best Buy, might call if you have a local store.

    you can buy similar on ebay. I bought this when there wasn't anything on Amazon for less. Works like a charm.
