is there such a thing as usb to scart as i want to run my playstation and wii through my pc screen, i currently running both consoles thru a splitter box to the tv,which is great but i have too many tv's in my room, so i thought why not run thru my pc tv card. i have run the play station thru av/phono's at the front before but could i get a usb to phono then attach my splitter box to that?

Do you mean USB to scart? They are very different types of connection. USB is a generic digital connection for data and scart is an analogue video cable for audio and video. There is no way to connect the two together directly.

If you want to connect to a tv in on your pc then your best bet is to use a Composite video (lowest quality) in or an S-Video in (better quality). These are both transmitted via a 'scart' cable and you can get adaptors to seperate the video and audio.

If you really do mean USB then you can get some external USB video converters:

Hope this helps

As far as I know the Playstation doesn't output any video information out from the USB so even if it was possible there'd be nothing there. USB is for connecting keyboards, mice etc. As said above USB is digital, RGB is Analogue.

Or do you mean HDMI? That's a digital video output but would still need an expensive box to convert to RGB.
