Thread: Adapter Question

  1. #1
    I'm going to use an LCD 19" monitor as a TV in my bedroom. Is this possible? It has s video connections on the back. If so, I can get an adapter thats coaxial(from the wall) to s video right? (For cable TV)

    The monitor can't tune a signal from your cable wire.
    You would need to use a vcr with svideo output, or some other type of receiver\digibox thing with svideo output.

    Best way, which i recomend you do, is use a tv tuner in your computer.

    The monitor won't be hooked up to a pc at all.

    Any other suggestions? My VCR doesn't have s-video hookups. What about a cable box?(cable box is a last resort since it's $35/month extra)

    There's some hookeup from joytech I think that lets you play playstation using a monitor, I think that works with tv too.

    Don't know if they still carry the product tho', you might be able to find it at an EB store or so.

    I thought about that but I figured there was at least some way to use this thing as a tv that would be cheaper than buying a whole new tv set. Maybe I should sell it to buy a tv. I would still rather use what I have cause I can mount it on the wall and save space in my room. *In other words, forget about this reply altogether *

    Well spotted, that man.

    Except of course with my solution.

    You could pick up a cheap vcr that has s-video out. Then with the audio out (white and red cables), have them go into a reciever. Then you could have a nice sound system.
