Many audio/visual devices such as DVD players, DVRs and VCRs use S-video cables to connect to televisions. It's possible to connect one of these devices to your computer monitor by constructing a simple S-video to VGA converter cable. You can obtain an S-video cable and VGA adaptor inexpensively at any electronics store. Using this adaptor, any device with a S-video port can be connected to a PC monitor or any other VGA port.
