    Hi everyone. The wire that connects to the back of my computer from the monitor looks like it can connect to the back of my NTL Reviever. Is it possible?

    Thought I'd ask before I kill myself in some kind of explosion...:oops: :eek:

    Thanks

    The connector on the ntl box will be a 9pin D type for RS232 serial for future use/upgrading/debugging. The connector on a monitor/PC connection is also a D type but is 15 pins for VGA video. If you look at the connectors end on the VGA has 3 rows but the 9 pin has 2 rows but their physical size is the same. In a word.....dont do it and it wont work!
