    I was wondering if such a extension/plug/jack exist? I have a lcd mon and I was wondering if it's possible to plug in a ps2/xbox/whatever to it? Or do i really need to buy a lcd tv to do so?

    yea, lots of shit can do this. google "composite to vga" and you'll see a buttload of products that accomplish this.

    i think what you mean by TV Plug is the yellow cable. that's a "composite" cable.

    if you mean the red / green / blue cables, those are component (analog HD)

    if so, just get a x to vga converter.

    lots of monitors (dell, for example) have those types of inputs. my last dell monitor, for example, had S-video, component, composite, VGA, and DVI

    Yea... i want to be able to plug a PS3 to my monitor. That's why I was wondering if I can plug in HD cables to my monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 931cw)...

    Edit: just checked, I only have DVI and VGA input on my monitor :(

    Alright, for those who are interested, I did a quick research and my best bet is a HDMI to DVI cable (since my monitor supposrt HDCP)
