Freeview Box with VGA Out

very unlikely to work with a PC monitor many cant cope with 15khz horizontal sync..........whcih you get from scart in short if its aPC monitor better off with a DVB-T card in PC if its a TV with no spare inputs then there are better ways

hi hornydragon it does say in the description of that cable:

"DVD, Freeview or other digital set top box with RGB output into a compatible computer monitor or plasma or LCD screen"

would his monitor manual tell him if his montior was suitable?

hopefully it woudl the signal he will get from freeview is 720x576 interlaced at 50Hz vertical refresh (not by any means a standard PC signal) if it supports that then it may be worth a try you can get cheap VGA boxes for consoles that use composite video inputs (S-video would be better) but very few for scart and they dont look great either
