    I want to plug my Skybox into my PC monitor ( Dell 2405 ). My Sky digibox has a scart connection and my PC has the RGB inputs but I cannot find a cable that does what I need.

    I find the other type cable easy, the one with Red White and Yellow, but no Red Green Blue connectors.

    Im a bit of a n00b when it comes to this as you can probably tell but does anyone know were I may be able to find a lead that would be suitable

    Thanx in advance!!

    From a review!!

    The Dell display also offers a wealth of connectivity options, including VGA, DVI, composite, component, and S-video connections. It also has integrated picture-in-picture (PiP) that works with any pair of inputs. The PiP lets you display a small window in one corner (user-selectable) or side-by-side windows. The addition of component inputs is welcome and makes the unit suitable as a small HDTV monitor. But the DVI input does not support HDCP content protection, so you can't use it with HDTV sources that require HDCP. Since this is primarily a desktop PC monitor, it also lacks HDMI connections.

    you can choose composit (lowest quality) or get a JS RGB>YUV converter (best quality) or if it is sky+ S-video (somewhere in the middle)
