    Hi

    I have many consoles SNES to Game cube, Saturn to PS2. I have a PC monitor. No TV because in the UK you have to pay £110 a year TV license - and I don't watch that much TV anyway.

    So I got this 21" Monitor with VGA and consloes that only connect by RGB scart or S-Video.

    Universal console cables:

    S-Video

    There's a S-Video to VGA box, quite common.

    Does anyone know a device that will allow RGB scart to VGA monitor?

    :lease:

    If you have a PC with a graphics card that had a video input, you could connect them up that way.

    Thanks.

    Any links to products? (Is that allowed here?)

    I just have the monitor, I'm going to use an LCD for the PC. Is there a standalone solution for RGB scart to VGA (without a TV tuner as then I will have to pay TV license) ?

    I also have a similar problem - my DVD player outputs RGB (actually YPbPr) and my projector has a VGA (9pin) input.

    At present I am forced to use the S-video input but I am sure that the YPbPr will give a better picture - anyone know where I can get a converter?

    Thanks
