Question

Ok hello I have a question about my setup i use a roxio game capture hd pro with my ps3 (using component cables) and i perfer to play on my led moniter as it uses less electricity as a tv and there is lower response time but it doesnt have hdmi anyway of cause i cant use a adapter like this http://www.ebay.com....V-/181010959825 because it has hdcp block on it so i was wondering if this would work http://www.ebay.com/...D-/360831891360 im not really sure about any of this as i just got it 2 weeks ago if you dont understand ill try to explain it in more detail later on.

 

if not do you guys think a female component to vga converter would work like this http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Connect-Component-Notebook-VGA-PC-to-TV-RCA-Video-AV-Audio-Adapter-4-DELL-LI-/170927275239?pt=AU_Components&hash=item27cc0f3ce7&_uhb=1

 

Edit: I have attached a photo of my ports on my moniter post-117272-0-68796100-1389914936_thumb.jpg

and the moniter itself post-117272-0-09296000-1389914997_thumb.jpg

There a actually Five different DVI standard connections :huh::wacko::o

 

DVI does not carry HDCP so that is not a reason.

 

Short answer is that Yes it MAY work but you have to find the right one ;)

(tv might be the better answer for you)

Im gonna use 24+1 pin which is basically standard dvi d cable and the feason I dont wanna use tv is because I only have a 32" but I wanna use my moniter because its a energy saving led but hopefully the cable works it says in the description on ebay it is hdcp hdtv ps3 xbox compatible and then I sent a message to make sure and he confirmed that so i found a cheaper one same brand and its 5 dollars aus so its worth a try I guess only 5 dollars

No - but I would ask that local shop when you take it back :lol::D:lol:

 

These things can lead to insanity!

 

I feel badly for cases like this, since I grabbed one off the shelf (HDMI to DVI-A) and it worked without any fuss :huh:
