Will BNC from my DVD player to my VGA socket on my TV work?

    Hi,

    Curious one this.

    I have a computer lead that has a VGA D Type socket at one end and 5 BNC sockets on it's other end.

    If and this is a BIG if, I put 3 BNC - Phono converters over the BNC Red Green an Blue leads and stick them into my DVD player. Then take the other end of the lead, the VGA to the VGA port on my TV, What will happen?

    Will it work and free up a valuable scart socket around the back giving me Component video?

    Or will, as I suspect nothing happen?

    Cheers,

    Dave.

    The VGA->BNC cable is for R, G, B, H-Sync and V-Sync the outputs on your DVD Player are component video.... so no it won't work. ;)

    Yeah,

    Thanks.

    I suppose the lead is VGA - VGA but with one end split to BNC caples.
