i was wondering how difficult it is to convert a computer monitor into normal TV .
i searched google and i found this

**broken link removed**

in this page i think they consider using a tv card tuner from ATI .

is there any document which describes what kinda signals monitors need to work and is there any circuit that converts RCA signals for example to a signal that fits the monitors ?

thanks for answering me .

You wish to feed a PC monitor with a composite vide signal ?

I wish to do the same, but has no time to work on this now, but guess that one way is to get monitor schematic and find out where is possible to insert the comp. signal. But this will not work, cos the signal are treated in different way, so a better way should be to convert the comp. video to digital. That´s what I´m looking for.
Let me know if U get more info.
