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 may actually be insane.

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.
VIVO is Video In/Video Out.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
