    monitor wiring?

    I did search but didn't come up with anything for my specific application. I am putting a 15" lcd monitor in my custom built center console and also 2
    6.5" monitors in the headrests. they will be ran off of my carputer. My question is how do i go about wiring all these together. The lcd has the normal computer hookup and the headrest monitors i believe have a rca video hookup(haven't ordered them yet). Is there a video card out there that i need to buy to support both hookups? I know there are video cards that have the normal lcd computer screen hookup and also a s-video with a convertor to component video, but i don't think that will work cause i believe i will need rca video? Any suggestions or help will be appreciated. Also if you have any suggestions on headrest monitors, just cheap ones since they are just for the times i have someone riding in the back seats, i found some on ebay for about 80 bucks a peice. Thanks for any advice

    You can get little convertors from s-video to rca, and then you can just split the rca with a splitter.

    NOTE: RCA video is composite, not component. Component vid is the 3 cable RGB(Y,Pb,Pr) setup.

    Thanks for the advice. One of my video cards cam with a s-video output and also a convertor to convert the s-video to component(the three cable setup). Where is the best place to get a convertor for s-video to rca? Thanks for all your help

    I always just bought crappy video cards and got 'em with that. Thankfully I had a use for those cards, and the adapters were a nice bonus. These guys should be able to help you out.
