I'm making a little project purely as a hobby using a small FPGA breakout board. I'm outputting VGA video which works fine, but would like HDMI output instead so I can connect to a television that has that input but no VGA.
I don't believe it's practical to generate HDMI directly from my FPGA board (correct me if I'm wrong...) so I was wondering if there was any encoder chip or board that doesn't cost too much that I could use in the project that takes VGA input (and possibly audio) and outputs a HDMI signal. I've not been able to find anything myself.
Any ideas? Or is this impractical and I should settle for analog video instead.
EDIT: Basically I'm asking if there is any way to generate HDMI that's possible for a small personal FPGA project, the VGA part isn't necessary if there is another way.
