I want to connect a 15 pin vga output from a computer to a TV input. However I do not want any data from the TV sent back to the computer. What I mean is that I do NOT want the TV to be a smart monitor but rather a dumb one. In other words the communication will be half duplex one way (from computer towards monitor ONLY).
I looked at the pin outs & I suspect pin 12 could be the problem as it is named bi-directional data. I am not sure if this is or this is NOT the ONLY problem pin. But just wondering.
Also I am not sure how a typical cable (15 pin) is connected. Of course I could open the connector and look inside but if you know the pinout diagram anyway, there is no need to do that. I googled and it shows 15 pin several connections such as one for RGB or one for VGA and this is why I am not sure.
My dilemma is that this is a high security computer and if the computer detects any feedback from the monitor, because that info gets sent back to the server and I am screwed for security violation bigtime & I do not want to get written up or even fired LOL
Of course I can buy a dumb monitor but since I have two extra TV's I want to rather use them. These are just new digital TVs but not so new as these are not smart TVs like a WIFI-TV or roku TV or something.
