connectivity with crt monitor

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a PS3/Xbox360 that I want to play on my CRT monitor. It only has a 15 Pin VGA D-SUB and 5 pin BNC inputs. What can I use to connect my PS3 to my monitor where can I get on of those cables in Canada? Any help would be appreciated.

Well for the 360 you can just pick up the the 360 VGA cable like the one at monoprice.com (http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2).

I don't know much about the PS3 connections..

Unfortunately, you cannot connect PS3, because your TV doesn't have the necessary inputs. Since I can't post URLs 'cause of 3 posts rule, google "PlayStation 3 accessories" and on Wikipedia under AV Cables you'll find more info.

Have a nice day.

pickup a cheap scan converter. Thats what i do. I just press the button on it to cycle through sources, in my case it is tv / ps3 / or camera ( for baby)

You will need a converter that will handle HDMI to VGA conversion. The HD fury would work well, but it is not cheap.

It's not a true VGA cable (it transcodes a component signal into VGA, basically), but it should do the work. It also works for Wii.

I have another question. Is it possible to connect my PS3 to my CRT monitor by connecting it to my ATI AIW 9800 PRO video card that has input adapter? The video card will be connected to my 21" Sony CRT monitor using a VGA-DVI adapter. The video card has a component input adapter and it has one for composite inputs (yellow,red,white)

Would this be possible and what would I need to do or what programs would I need to get this working?

"The video card has a component input adapter and it has one for composite inputs (yellow,red,white)"

You should double check that info. Chances are good that it has a component video output adapter, and composite/svideo input.
