RCA to VGA? [R]

1 year, 3 months agosamfreez posted submission on techsupport.
Aug. 10, 2018


I have an old VideoEye! that uses 1 yellow RCA cable for video. It's a simple plug-and-play that magnifies things on a screen. Is it possible to splice a VGA cable with a female RCA plug to get it to work on a desktop monitor? This diagram says the red, green, and blue wires are video.. could I solder that to an RCA jack?

Simple phrasing: RCA out, monitor only accepts VGA, what do?

SNES to PC monitor through DP [R]

Nov. 14, 2017

I'm trying to clean up my living room and consolidate some stuff into my bedroom. I have an s-video to HDMI converter and purchased an hdmi-active DP converter to hook up to my Dell U2211H monitors. In theory I'd imagine this could work since the s-video converter brings it to 720/1080P but I have nothing but a black screen when I try. Am I overlooking something? I know it seems ridiculous but I figured it was worth a gamble.

You're kind of making a mess with all the different signal types and converters. However, you may want to ditch the displayport idea, and go straight s-video to VGA.

S-Video to VGA [R]

I wish to use one of these converter boxes you can get, that converts the S-Video cable from my N64 to a VGA, so i can connect it to my PC monitor.

Do any of you have any experience with these converters? I want as good a picture as i can get with as little lag as possible, without paying too much. I know you can get really expensive converters.

Also, it would be a plus if it's from a UK shop or something like that, that ships to whole of Europe.

What kind of monitor are you hooking it up to? I have one of these:


And from my experience the picture quality is quite bad on LCD/LED monitors. The image is blurry and the pixelation is very noticeable. I also recall some ghosting. I hooked it up to an old CRT at one point and, at the time anyway, thought the picture quality was way better - maybe someone else can speak to this.

Anyway, in regards to input latency, I didn't notice any.

Final thoughts: it works and I have played through entire games with this kind of setup but you pay for the convenience.

I've tried changing the PS2 settings from RGB to Y Cb/Pb Cr/Pr but nothing is working.

I have currently a GTX 650 EVGA SC w/ 1gb currently, not sure if I'll upgrade my GPU also soon, but that should be good enough? I preferably want it on my monitor. My monitor only has 1 VGA input and no built in speakers. My current speakers have the 3.5mm cable + USB which I should be able to plug the 3.5mm into the converter box and the USB into the PS2 if I'm not mistaken? If I use that first converter box you linked, https://www.amazon.com/Composite-S-Video-Converter-Screen-Version/dp/B003NUN7DG , you say the performance will be choppy. Choppy as in input lag or bad fps? Also, my monitor is 1366x768. Would it still work or not because that's not one of the listed supported resolutions there?

AFAIK those signals aren't compatible, you will need a converter box and even then it's going to be choppy. You can try something like this and it may work:


Mileage will vary based on the monitor, resolution, etc and you will still need to convert the audio. You can buy something that can convert it to 3.5" and use it with speakers or something else, will likely need couplers or a cable that has female ends, but it would look something like this:


Crafting a Gamecube AV cable (analog, not digital) to go Directly to VGA [R]

3 years, 2 months agoNukatha posted submission on Gamecube.
Sept. 30, 2016

I may (most likely) am way over my head on this but I thought up this project for myself a few days ago. Basically, the normal analog AV output of the Gamecube is composite video with left and right audio, and I want to try to instead have VGA with left and right audio running on its own 3.5mm. I'm hardly concerned about the audio because that's easy pairing left and right up. The VGA though, is a bit more technical and why I am here.

Some context:

I have a Gamecube with only Analog AV out. No digital AV out. For any unfamiliar, that means it has composite video out.

My display of choice is a monitor, not a TV, so the standard composite video on the Gamecube is a no-go. My options for video input to my monitor are VGA, HDMI and DVI. Unless I want to get into DACs and PCBs, VGA is my only choice.

Why I think this project has a chance of working out:

I did the natural thing to do when you have a question and started Googling about it. Turns out, the internet is very beautiful and is caked in images diagramming the pins of the Gamecube's analog AV out port. Namely, this one.

Now, yes, this image is about wiring a Gamecube up to SCART, which I want nothing to do with. What I care most about is those red green and blue pins, because that's exactly what VGA needs. I think.

My intuition looking at this picture says that if those red green and blue pins are in fact live and ready to output a signal then I can wire them up to a VGA cable, add the ground in, and viola, Gamecube outputs to VGA. Now, at the same time, the same intuition is also telling me that such a thing is silly and too simple to be true.

Other thing is, the VGA cable I have is, well interesting. That same intuition is kicking in again here; I believe, the yellow cable is carrying the green signal, and I believe the grey cable may be a ground. The rest, I only know that one is horizontal sync and another vertical sync, but I think those are safe to ignore.

Basically out of all of this I am asking for some sort of validation, guidance, refutation, pretty much any input on whether or not my project is feasible. Thanks in advance!

Just get a first-party S-Video cable and an S-Video to VGA adapter like this: https://www.amazon.com/Composite-S-Video-Converter-Screen-Version/dp/B003NUN7DG

That would be the easiest way to get a decent quality signal (The S-video looks far better than starting with composite). Obviously a mod on the digital out is the best way, but this might just work.

EDIT: There was a Gamecube Aficionado on Amazon who tried this and seems pleased: https://www.amazon.com/review/R20WW7MOZDDE83/ref=cmcrdp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B003NUN7DG&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=172282&store=electronics

It is technically an upscaled 480i image, so if you absolutely must have that sweet sweet p, you'd need a hard mod.

3.5mm from VRX to VGA or HDMI for ground station monitor. [R]

3 years, 8 months agoRedlining posted submission on Multicopter.
April 5, 2016

Hey all, setting up a monitor in one of my flight cases for fun. I've stripped it down and it fits beautifully. The issue I am trying to resolve at the moment is how I go from the 3.5mm out on most vrx to either vga or hdmi.

For anyone interested here is the test fit. Ideally I'd like to relocate the control board for the LCD but the cable length doesn't give me many options. For that reason I will probably solder the VGA connections to the board directly along with the power connector so I don't have to space the screen off the case so much. Still trying to figure out how to mount the screen inside of the case.

You'd have to find an analog to digital converter to get the (analog) video signals from your receiver to your monitor.

If you are willing to deal with some video artifacts, you can get one of these to get out of the problem.

Capture Card [R]

So, I'm a UK based person, and want to stream my Wii console (vc games). I have a few issues:

1) I don't have a capture card. Suggestions? Preferably under £20 if possible. I'm still in school and don't earn too much.

2) I don't have a TV. I have two PC monitors, the 4:3 one I want to play the games on has only VGA and DVI inputs, and the other has those two plus HDMI (which I use for my PC).

Can anyone help me find a setup that will get me streaming? P.S: I already have a PC with OBS, I just need help with what to buy.

Reviving an Apple IIc [R]

3 years, 11 months agojustindustin posted submission on vintagecomputing.
Jan. 1, 2016

My first post here, but hopefully worth it. In the course of cleaning out a room in my house I finally attempted to boot up an Apple IIc that has been sitting in a box for the past 10 years. Before that it belonged to my in-laws who were just going to toss it out. I've not really had a use for it, and I still don't know what I could really do with it, but I can at least say it works! In fact, I've even done the research and confirmed that a simple composite-to-VGA adapter I have is a perfect match to get this thing outputting video to a modern LCD panel (pardon the messy desk). So with the CPU portion working just fine and having a suitable replacement for output, I may still just hang on to the computer itself. However, I am still looking to remove some unnecessary clutter: the ImageWriter II and the AppleColor Composite Monitor. Are there any projects out there that could make use of these components in a worthwhile manner? Or, would it be better for me to donate them to a local hackerspace? I'm not looking to make anything off of them--just pass along the peripherals that are just too big and bulky to store long-term.

Depends on what your goal is. If your goal is just to get the system to display on an old VGA enabled monitor, then you could probably use something like this. If you got this, it would also be a great idea to grab a Nintendo S-Video Cable as well. It will greatly improve the system's visual quality.

If your goal is getting better quality visuals overall using VGA instead of composite, you'll need to do more digging. There might be a way to modify your console to output RGB and then create a VGA cable specific to the n64, but it would likely be very involved. There are better ways to maximize the n64's output.

Is it possible to directly connect a 2600 system to a computer monitor? [R]

Dec. 29, 2015

Thanks for taking a look. I'm looking to display games from the console directly to a 19" Dell monitor, from stock RCA composite to preferably VGA. From what I've read this will handle the video portion just fine, though audio would have to be accounted for separately. My question is whether or what adaption is available for such a connection. Is there some tool generally used for this that I should look to buy?

I appreciate any insight on this. Thanks.

Dec. 29, 2015

To handle the video signal you would need something like this Composite to VGA adapter. I've never used this, so I can't say if it works.

As for audio, a good set of high quality computer speakers should work just fine, and something like this would probably enable you to connect the stereo composite audio cables to the speakers.

But I'm wondering why you have composite cables for an Atari 2600. Is it modded?

You can try these two products together, no guarantee they'll work. It appears that the only output solutions for gamecube are either s-video or composite.

Hey everyone, firstly I hope this kind of post is okay this is my first time posting in here, but I need help. I recently brought my Gamecube from home to college where I don't have a TV. I found a monitor in my basement that wasn't in use so I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to bring this awesome gaming system to school while maintaining maximum space in my room. The Gamecube has the original composite video (the one with the red, white, and yellow, i think that's what its called :/) and stereo audio output. Here's my problem though the monitor only has VGA, USB, and DVI-D inputs. I bought this to realize it doesn't work (and after reading all the horrible reviews of it). I was just wondering if anybody in /r/gaming knows a solution, preferably cheap, for me to play Gamecube on my shitty Dell monitor.

Tl;DR: Gamecube composite video output, monitor VGA, DVI-D inputs, how do I connect

4 years, 8 months agoReasonabledwarf posted on gaming.
March 16, 2015

These aren't a real thing. VGA doesn't support those standards by default; unless you have a specially modified VGA port it won't work. You can get dongles that convert video from VGA to composite and vice versa, but they're more finicky and expensive. Like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Composite-S-Video-Converter-Screen-Version/dp/B003NUN7DG

It kinda sucks but it works.

I don't know if this is the best place to ask this, but i haven't found a good enough answer via google searches to feel confident in starting to spend money on adapter\cables for this.

Basically I just want to hook up my Gamecube, and possible other consoles like ps1, ps2, xbox, etc up to my computer monitor(due to a lack of a tv). And i'm not sure what exactly is required to do this.

this is my monitor, there is a button on it for swapping the two inputs (DVI and VGA) , the dvi is used for my computer, so i wanted to use the VGA for the gamecube, or possibly other consoles if i want to swap them out.

There's also no built in speakers to the monitor, so i'm not sure what to do there for sound.
