    Scart and the yellow RCA video, plus the usual co-xial and L&R phono sound and TOS-link optical.

    here's the output specs:

    Rear Panel Terminals
    Component Video Output: RCA Jack x3 (Y/CB/CR)
    S-Video Output: Mini DIN Jack x1
    Composite Video Output: RCA Jack x 1

    You are going to have to find a converter that will convert either your SCART or component DVD output to whatever input your PC monitor has - Js-technology.com do a RGB to Plasma VGA Converter. It may be worth phoning them to see if that will do what you want. Its all going to depend on whether your PC monitor will take in standard video rates.

    I don't know about laptop video capture cards.

    Well I think PC TFT do not have the same spec as the LCD TV otherwise most people here, would have be hooking there dvds to there TFT monitor,s and do not forget the cost of leads and converter not worth it.

    Hope this help, or you can try to find out the hard way like I usally do
    cheers
