D12-500 receiver to a Computer Monitor? Anyone tried?
Posted 14 August 2010 - 07:59 AM
Is there some sort of converter cable that I can use to connect to either the S-Video port or the Yellow video port of the RCA connections that I can then plug into either the VGA or DVI-I port on the monitor?
Purpose: I am trying to create a secondary TV for viewing games "on the side" for the upcoming football season by using what I have laying around the house.
Will this work or is this impossible based on the signals and source? Thanks.

You may be able to upgrade your receiver as stated for free, or at least next to nothing ($49-99) if you don't mind the additional programming commitment extention. Besides, with an HD IRD your picture quality will vastly inprove with the HD lineup they now offer.
