Component to VGA Help ?


Standard Member
Hi all, I been reading up allot about component to VGA conversions and have become a little confused.

I know 2 ways this can be done.
1. Component > VGA cable
2. Component > VGA converter

My question is;
I have a Samsung Syncmaster P2250

Does anybody know is I can get away with using the Component to VGA cable?

Im at a loss of what to do right now and would appreciate the help

"Please note that not all VGA / SVGA connectors will be compatible with component video, for example a PC will most likely output only RGBHV, please ask for advice if not sure."

so you need to ensure you equipment can produce the signal on a vga>rgb cable.

These cables are usually for PC to TV (vga to RGB) not the other way around as I understand it but it might be possible. what is the source going into that monitor ?
