    In order to connect a console to comp monitor is there a specific piece of hardware needed. I found this, and was wondering if this would be something that would work.....

    I'm basicly looking for something easy to use, and something that could simply be picked up at a local store.

    Any feedback or help would be very much appreciated.

    Can't you use a TV tuner card or ATI's All-in-wonder?

    Or any card with a video-in plug. My GFFX5900U has S-video in, and the end result, after it goes through miles of cables and chips and filter, is quite smooth. Pro-scan looking, and with some blurriness that makes it look AAed... Very pretty.

    Otherwise, for pure pro-scan, i use the Blaze VGA Adaptor, which gives a cleaner but jaggier image...

    All the other fake VGA boxes are totally useles...

    Try Dscaler, it will make the deinterlace and apply some filters. Remember, you won't want to look to another not-dscaled tv-tuner image after trying this little program.

    google "dscaler" for it.
