    I'm have a S-video source (digital TV decoder box) and would like to display
    it on a 19" CRT monitor. Is there a device which I can buy that allows me to
    do this? I know you can get VGA->TV converts,... but never really seen one
    that goes the other way....

    Cheers!!

    ** A new 19 inch ( 48 cm) TV set will cost you less than the box of
    tricks to do that.

    Thanks Phil,.. it may be cheaper with a 2nd TV set... but I don't have that
    much room and using the PC monitor seems to be a logical idea...

    |
    | Here is the link http://www.swann.com.au/products/dv/easy/dvd_easy.htm

    | probably cost around $200 or more


    Not quite what I'm after... I want to use the PC Monitor without powering up
    the PC... Thanks anyways!

    ** Huh ???

    Since when is a a 19 inch TV necessarily bigger than a 19 inch monitor
    ??

    He likely needs the monitor for the PC anyway, stupid.

    So being able to watch TV on it saves on one screen, stupid.

    No wonder you're completely unemployable.

    ** Then explain why he rejected the obvious idea a using a video card in the
    PC ???

    Only the OP knows his reasons - you fucking don't.

    Phil

    Rod is correct. I still want to be able to watch TV *and* use the PC. Since
    my room is only a little bit bigger than a closet, it'll be convenient to
    use the PC Monitor as a TV without having to turn the PC on.


    BTW I found exactly what I wanted. Here's the link if anyone else is
    interested: http://www.highway.net.au/parts/converters/1324.html

    ** No he was not - read his next post.
    ** Opposite to Rod's next post.

    ** That remark makes no sense.

    How does operating the PC's on switch lose space in your room ???????

    Your way means having to unplug the monitor lead from the PC *every time*
    you need to watch TV and then put it back to use the PC - that seems
    MASSIVELY inconvenient.

    Using a video capture card mean you have one or the other any time or can
    even have both at once ( ie the TV image in a window) .

  19. You'll still need an RF tuner to use with that, a cheap VCR would
    probably be the go.

    Do try reading the whole thread - David.
