    Hey you guys, i've got a stand-alone dvd player from jvc (XV-523), and since my parents have nicked my television from me, i'm not able to play dvd's anymore, so my first question is how do i connect my dvd player either straight to, or via my pc to the monitor, and are there different options for doing this, or is it totally not possible.

    I should imagine this is possible, you'd just need a scart to Monitor cable (can't remember the correct name) adapter.
    You would also need a seperate amplifier and speakers for the sound too.

    Couldn't you use VIVO, if your video card has that option? Then plug the sound into your sound card?

    I watch TV like this.

    I got a VCR on my desk, with inputs. I connect whatever to it, cable from TV, video game sys, DVD, and then from video out, I run a yellow wire from my sound card to the VCR, and use VIVO for viewing on the PC, with a small proggie called TV viewer. I need a vivo viewer still. :confused: :p

    I may be stupid, but could someone explain VIVO to me. I've seen it come up before but never really looked into it.

    It might be cheaper...

    It might be cheaper to get a dvd player for your PC than to buy all the cables, adapters, etc. Here's one at PCWebShopper for $42.

    VIVO is Video In/Video Out.
