Aerial to VGA/DVI/HDMI?

    • Thread Starter

    Is this possible? I want to use my PlayStation/N64 on my HD monitor. I'm not sure where to look for a cable that converts those circular aerial plugs into something that will connect to the screen though.

    buy a nintendo av multi out cable which you plug into your n64 instead of the little black aerial box, and the equivalent for the playstation

    n64 -

    playstation one depends if you have the original with the yellow and white rca jacks (use phono cables)

    or a newer one - use this type

    if you have a ps2 or 3 you might have one already

    Depends on what you're monitor supports you're best chance is if your monitor has a composite/svideo/scart input. Anything else is going to require some special converter (which is likely to cost a fair amount).

    If your monitor doesn't support composite/scart/svideo you might be better off getting a cheap tv (freecycle!)

    You're not going to get much better video on your HD monitor than you would get from an older TV.
