    Hi guys...........i know prob in the wrong section but..............is there any way to connect to a pc tft flat screen just by using a video phono?

    want to connect a dvd player to a monitor,think most of them are vga input...that correct?

    or do i just need to find a more expensive combi unit?

    Well, it all depends on what conections that particular monitor has!
    Some LCD monitors do have composite conections but most dont.

    Usually they have VGA or DVI.

    It may be possible to get a cable that does composite to VGA but I dont really know. I do know that component to VGA is possible.

    Why would you want to use such a bad conection anyway? Most DVD players do have component. So why not use that?
