Hello,

I have a flat screen monitor which I want to connect to my DVD player.

The problem is my monitor got only two ports.

One is a 15 pin port,and the other is a dual port.

Please suggest me which converter should I choose for solving this problem.

I will be grateful if you send the answer quickly.

1. Compare your monitor's inputs with your DVD player's outputs. Every monitor will have a VGA input, a standard input that is long and skinny and has several pins; every DVD player has a composite output of red, white and yellow prongs. If these are the only inputs or outputs you can find, you will need an adapter. However, if you can find DVI or S-Video outputs or inputs on both your monitor and your DVD player, you can hook them up directly and skip Step 2.

2. If you do not have matching inputs and outputs, you will need to find an adapter that will resolve the different formats. The most common is a composite-to-VGA adapter, which uses the standard red, yellow and white composite inputs and changes the signal for the standard monitor VGA input. However, it should be noted that the picture quality on a composite VGA adapter is fairly poor, and if you have a DVI or S-Video input on your monitor, it is best to use it. 

3. Connect all the cords. If you are using an adapter, you will want to connect the DVD player to the adapter first before plugging the VGA cord into the monitor. Both the DVD and the monitor should be powered off while you connect the cables.

4. Start up your DVD player and see if the monitor displays the picture correctly. If the picture is scrambled or the signal is fuzzy, you may need to toggle some of the options on your adapter, such as analog/digital options or input/output switches. You can also try a different connection scheme, such as using an s-Video-to-DVI connection instead of composite-to-VGA.

Warning: Most standard-grade computer monitors are not made to handle multiple inputs, so you will not be able to use your computer while your DVD player is plugged in.  Many people find it easier to use a TV converter connected to the DVD player for easier connection as well as the ability to watch television.

Here are some suggested converters:

1.

PC to TV Converter, Converts VGA to composite and S-Video.

2.

Hi there , 

It seems you are having trouble with using computer monitors with DVD players . 

Its not directly possible but its possible though , no worries .

Just look at the back of your LCD monitor if that 15 pin connector is Blue in color if yes then its a VGA port or Visual graphics array port . 

You DVD player sends the video in Digital format through AV signals , that is yellow cable for Video signals and the Red for audio that is right speaker and the white for the left audio signal respectively.The audio ports Red and White cant be used because you need external speakers to hear the sound,and the audio is not supported in monitors .

Just buy an AV to VGA converter and then plugging the yellow video cable in the input place and then the VGA port on the other and you can see you DVD in your LCD monitor.
