Hi,

I have installed Nebtop and I am planning to use my atrix with my very very old Philips 17" CRT monitor.

Here is my Atrix to CRT Monitor chain:
Atrix + Micro usb to HDMI Male + HDMI Female to HDMI Female + HDMI Male to DVI Female + DVI Male to VGA Female + CRT Monitor with VGA Male

Do you think that this chain works? If not, Can you tell me what I am missing?

That's exactly what I need! Do you have any experiences with some of adapters? Actually it must be (D/A) converters .
I see that third one need external power instead of first two. I'm think that Atrix will not provide enough power for adapters without external power supply.

Sorry, can't help you there. Just did a quick search and came up with what I posted.

I don't see any connector for external power. Does it works without it? Just from Atrix over adapters to monitor?

Edit: I've ordered http://www.ebay.com/itm/Micro-HDMI-t...ht_4375wt_1270 I hope it will work as yours.

Yes, it works. It does not need extra power to work.
