I'll tell you if you get this loan sorted :p

But anyway.....Try Maplin

http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=37141&C=Froogle&U=37141&T=31291 This won't work with a CRT monitor though...

You might need a female coupler with that if your monitor has a fixed cable...

4th product down here

EDIT: slightly more expensive but this should work with a CRT...

You cannot link a SCART output to a CRT monitor input.

You can with a DVI output though (it seperates red, green, blue, brightness, luminousity and sync).

Why not buy a cheap PCI video-capture card with composite video output for about 15.00?

Connect the DVD/PSX to the PCI card with a composite video cable. Connect the AGP card to your monitor as normal. The output from the DVD/PSX will then be output to the monitor directly.

Alternatively, why not try a Playstation emulator such as Bleem!? Get a decent DVD drive for your PC while you're at it!

I stand corrected!

A bit expensive! Plus, the Playstation doesn't actually have a SCART output. So he'd also need a male composite video to female scart socket connector, the degradation of luminousity would be massive.

A Macrovision encrypted signal would not pass freely through a EUROSCART to VGA breakout box either.

just get a massive tv like i have a shot of that has a moniter input in the back' date=' 45 inches of aberdeen music, yeh baby!![/quote']

Um, while a massive tv would be fine for his purposes (assuming it has a SCART input), the monitor input wouldn't do anything for him.

He's trying to put something not designed to go into a monitor into a monitor, not the other way around.

If you see what I mean.

45 inches of aberdeen-music sounds like fun, but what the hell are you doing on this site when you could be looking at 45 inches of porn? ;)
