    View DVD & PC with VGA (640 x 480)???

    Is it possible to use a VGA (640 x 480) resolution to watch DVDs and connect to a regular PC, assuming the proper interface to the LCD???
    Thanks

    Its not clear from your post...do you want to use a computer monitor to watch a DVD player? Or do you want to connect a DVD player to your computer?

    If it has a standard vga connector on it, it will work fine.

    Have you even tried to connect it?

    Remember you need a DVD player to be able to see DVD's on it.
