    You can't just connect a digital video out to an analog input with a passive adapter.

    As far as I'm aware, the Switch doesn't provide analog video out.

    It's not a matter of resolution. The Switch can't output analog video, and the monitor most likely can't use digital video over a VGA connection.

    Show me. Is it a passive adapter? I very much doubt so. He most likely has an active converter.

    I did ask for it because I'm not entirely sure if it supports it or not.

    You didn't prove me wrong. Unless I'm mistaken, that doesn't work with all monitors, as many can't use the signal the Switch outputs.

    "BOI!!!"

    That was a childish remark. You can provide evidence, but avoid coming off as a prick, you know?

    Essentially, if digital video over VGA isn't supported (it isn't standard, chances are it isn't), you won't be able to use it.
    I was not mistaken, as far as my research has shown me.
    There's no passive adapter that can convert digital to analog.
