Obscure questions, I know, but I'm searching around...
Transcoding from VGA to component, and vice versa, is possible, both them being analog signals, though not inexpensive, but VGA to HDMI is all but impossible, doubly so since analog VGA is not compatible with HDCP. Similarly, DVI-A is not easily transcoded to DVI-D or HDMI, but HDCP brings them even further apart.
