I'm trying to connect an old Sony DVD Recorder (RDR-HX510) to my LCD computer monitor, a Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM. Since the HX510 does not have an HDMI output my only option is to use the analogue component output and convert this to VGA D-Sub or HDMI. I think keeping it as an analogue signal is probably the easiest (and cheapest) thing to do so I just wanted to know whether it's just a case of getting a component to VGA adapter cable? I've tried one but it does not work (monitor keeps saying no input signal) though I know it works with a projector I have and I've tried using the DVD Recorder with my TV via component without difficulties. Any ideas?
