    I've got a spare video recorder at home, which I would like to use in my office. However, not having a TV there, I'd like to ouput the video picture to a computer's monitor (got several of those spare, too!).
    Is is possible to do this? Is there a connector of some-sort to allow Scart to VGA?
    It would help to while away the dull, inactive hours, if I could watch a bit of video...

    Thanks!

    Hi Mke

    get yourself a cheap TV tuner card, install that in to you one of your PC's and then connect the video to that - the easiest way is with the RF output as that will deliver your audio as well. The quality will be average at best, but it is the easiest way to set this up..

    VHS..how quaint :)
