    Why not use a DVD player throught your computer? That "gender changer" you list is software driven off of a supporting video card- it will only change a video card's VGA to the s-video/composite, not the reverse.

    I dont have my carcomputer anymore....what i want to do is change the lead from the touchscreen from VGA to svideo to plug into my dvd player...this wont work then?...if not i can run rca or svideo..im not positive if the svideo connection is still connected to my monitor...if it isnt..can i get a way with a heavy duty shielded RCA cable..or is the quality alot better with the SVIDEO?

    I'd use the S-video if the screen has it. There are also DVD players on eBay that have VGA output. You can use RCA's if you have to, just dont run them along with the power wires.
