Because HDMI is a digital signal and VGA is an analogue signal, you need a converter to connect between the HDMI output and the VGA input

Here are some examples. As I do not know your location you may have to source them 'closer to home'.

Be wary of the ones, because they are cheap, that show only a cable having different connectors at each end. (Here is an example . You need something to convert the signal from digital to analogue, just wiring two different types of connectors together can't do it.
