Im still waiting on these cheap Datapath cards on eBay (PCI-E VisionRGB-E1S are still expensive for me and PCI ones - i now see 70 bucks piece on eBay, but still did not make decision, if would buy it, or start with some newer HDMI card.. +my target machine is quite low of PCI slots, because im using it for gaming too) and cheap VGA to Svideo convertor box which recommended Phil few years ago is still on the way, these convertors came more quickly. For now, when i really have to capture something i can do it through some very old capture card with Conexant 878 and S-Video.. Im not in the hurry.
I have monitors with lots of inputs, i would like to have some flexibility.. i just was wondered if these i will or will not work.. i also have some older Aver capture / TV cards.. which have some special input 7/ 9 pin connectors and i dont have original cables.. i tried some from eBay and i was not successfull so far, so i tried them also just with monitors.. and it seems that they are not working.. for example one of my monitor doesnt have VGA input, but have component and composite and s-video.. I have some special convertor bundled with old Graphics card from 7/ 9 pin to Component etc.. and they are working fine for it, so i thought that other would work too.
Is interesting research i could be handy for others.
