Grrrrrrrr, I just got back from a nice relaxing holiday in Tuscany expecting to have my new AE100 sat on my bed. It turns out that Unbeatable (never order off them ever!!!) declined my credit card for the 3rd time (they kept sending the wrong details, which I corrected 3 times!) while on holiday and cancelled the order negating my 6 week wait. Blah blah, now to the point.......... Just before my trip to gorgeous Northern Italy (very nice place!) I sold my PS2 to my brother. The reason for this was to drum up some cash for a GC. The panny was being ordered as I wanted a projector for my room and something to play the GC on. I live in a shared house of 4 the current TV is a 6" cube in the lounge, completely inappropriate for any console. At the moment I really do not want to go through the heartache of online ordering expensive electronic equipment (have had a real bad run of luck with PC components and parcelforce). The current idea is that I may go out and get a Phillips 28" Wide/Flatscreen for £550 for the lounge. The confusion arises over the GC, as I want a way to play it in my room as well as the lounge (the girls in my house don't like watching console games too much!). I have a 17" monitor for my PC which would be perfect for a little bedroom joypad action. What I am confused over is that the PAL GC will not use the AV out? This means I cannot use the VGA convertor ala Lik-Sang? Is there any way I can play the GC over a monitor? Or would I have to buy an import GC, which although could be useful creates the annoyance of having to buy import games. Or if anyone knows of either a decent AV shop within a driving (50mile radius) of Bristol, or a good console importer near there I would be grateful to have their details as I cannot find any on the net.
