Note that not all EDID's are programmable through the Video connector. You will be able to read the EDID from virtually any device, but most likely the EDID of HDMI sinks (displays) may be write-protected. Most VGA EDID's are writable, but you have to be very careful since you will be erasing the EDID that is present in the sink device. Always save a copy of the original before writing a new EDID to the sink device.
