    Hi all!

    Help!

    Am dealing with the usual problem of component to rgb.

    Here is the equipment I am dealing with:

    Dish Network HD receiver 811, info, along with product brochure (download pdf) can be found at:
    http://www.dishnetwork.com/content/products/receivers/HD/index.shtml

    Sony Flat Panel PFM-42B1, product brochure with specs can be found at:
    http://www.dishnetwork.com/content/products/receivers/HD/index.shtml

    Need to connect receiver to monitor. Receiver has DVI or Componet outs and monitor only has 2 15pin RGB in along with an s-video

    Will the following product work:
    http://store.a2zcable.com/coviad15mto3.html

    Don't have the knowledge to understand the spec sheet above on the monitor.

    However, on monitor under set-up, have the following "input" options:
    input 1 rgb
    input 1 yuv
    input 2 rgb
    input 2 yuv
    video composite
    video y/c

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Will above cable work?
    Do I need to just get a "componet to rgb converter" such as some unit from Viewsonic or such?

    Thanks in advance,
    DrBombay

    Since you have USA equipment , you would be better off posting in the USA equivalent of these forums : www.avsforums.com

    I think what you need cannot be done passively. This looks as if it was designed just for your purposes.

    :thumbsup: Just go into the setup menu on the display and set it to YUV, YUV is another name for component video then all you need is a 3 RCA to HD15 lead for component video
