    PSOne monitor (again) how to connect to TV-Out

    Can't quiet seem to be able to figure this out.

    I have read through a lot of the post but I still can't get it, please explain it like I am an complete Morron (I Almost am on this subject)

    I don't want to use RGB (Cause I aint that good with soldering ) so I want to use TV-Out from my GFX card (It also means easy to connect to other devices )

    But in all the post you all say: "You have to use RCA"

    What is RCA is it the same as composit cable, i can buy a Sony PSOne 5" screen for 60$ (used of course) but In any of the pictures I can't see any such connector

    So how do one connect it?

    Please help a complete n00b

    There's a green coloured 3.5mm socket on the back of the PSOne display. That takes in a "Sony" jack, which is a 3.5mm plug with left audio, right audio, composite video and ground on it (not in that order).

    Try see if you can find a 4 point 3.5mm plug, they're not too easy to find. I'll see if i can find the order of the points, i wrote it down somewhere... You should be able to connect your composite video signal directly into that and have it display on the LCD.

    (The above is if you have a Sony branded PSOne LCD, don't know for other brands)

    Thanks for the feedback, RCA is what we in Denmark call Composit

    And if that doesn't work, then I'll try the "sony" jack, that starfox talks about

    i'll throw in my 0.02.

    I just use a regular RCA-headphone cable to get the video from a composite source to the psone screen.

    see the link for a pic of the cable i use...very common.

    And if you REALLY want audio from the screen as well, just feed it in the 2nd RCA cable and you'll have mono sound.
