    Hey all. I am looking to hook a panasonic 5 disc DVD player to a LCD computer monitor with only a VGA input on the back.

    Are there any coverter boxes or cables that I can buy for cheap to do this?

    thanks. :bowdown:

    Yes, there are plenty of TV box converters. They have a variety of inputs (RCA, DVI, Co-Ax, S-video, higher end ones have component video). They have VGA and DVI out.

    this should be all you need:

    maybe one of these depending on if you have a detachable cable on the lcd:
