Getting VGA into a Sony KV-36HS500

2726 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Fahrenheit85
So I'm picking up the KV-36HS500 on the cheap for a retro game TV. Really want to get my Dreamcast plugged into it via VGA. TV has no VGA input. Has DVI and componet. The DVI port has a DVI-D so as I understand it a VGA cable to DVI won't work. A few people also reported that the converter boxes from VGA to digital has not worked for them. So that leaves a VGA to componet converter. Any recommendations on one or a work around for my problem? Thanks!

I presume a Crescendo TC1600 would do what you want. Pricy piece of kit though.

A VGA to HDMI converter would be cheaper but I have doubts about how well that would work in your case.

I think Philips made HD CRT TVs with VGA input.

Well the price was too good to pass up. Looks great so far but only had Dreamcast into it with Svideo. I got a VGA to Component trans-coder coming today. See how this bad boy looks in 480P (if it works)
