Anyone know of any vendors that sell s-video IN to vga OUT cables? A few days ago, I purchased an Asus VH236H 23” LCD monitor for gaming. Currently, I have an Xbox 360(vga) and PS3(hdmi) connected to it, but I want to also connect my Dreamcast(svideo), PS2(svideo), and Sega Saturn(svideo) to this display as well. A vga IN/s-video OUT cable does not work in this situation. Before this purchase, I had my Dreamcast, PS2, and Sega Saturn connected via s-video cables into an AV (svideo/composite) switch. Next, the switch s-video output was connected to an RF modulator which was outputting to a “tube” CRT T.V. [This T.V. only has a coaxial port; it was released in 1995]
[This was my methodology]

Dreamcast, PS2, and Sega Saturn connected via s-video to s-video switch
Switch’s s-video output connected to s-video IN/ vga OUT cable (or adapter) to Asus VH236H.
If need be, I can solder.

I think I have found a solution for my setup.
