    I doubt that is a VGA like connection... What is the resolution of the screen? If it is less than VGA (640x480) I would just dump it now, it isnt worth it.

    That looks like s-video to me, or at least something similar. If its one of those all in one plugs that is designed to be split apart for maintenance (Think the data plug on the lilliputs, that kind of thing), it will be their own design.

    But as Toaster said, it looks like the 16 quid might not have been quite the bargain, sorry!

    I actually used to have a box that was a TV tuner which output to a VGA screen. The box had a connector that looked like that and the wire that came with it had one end that looked like that and one end was VGA. You may be in like.
