HDMI to VGA converter

Hello,

I just tried a simple HDMI to VGA converter on a Banana Pi. It is a converter without its own power supply.
I am using Kubuntu (a modified Lubuntu image).

I am able to boot, to log in, but then, immediately after login, the system shuts down.

Am I trying to pull too much power through the Banana Pi HDMI connector ?
Is there any risk to dammage the banana Pi by doing so ?

I have seen a couple of short threads talking about the topic, but they are only very shorts exchanges, with no practical details...

Thank you for any advice.

Sounds like it needs more power.

While it is possible that it might damage your BPi, I suspect it would not.. as long as you don't keep trying.
