An RCA to VGA adapter and you should be good to go.

So I need an adapter and not a converter?

You know I'm not sure if that will work

It will be sweet if that's what I need

I only paid like $8 for my EasyCap, and it shows. The tiniest jostle makes it lose connection and it does not auto-reconnect. I don't know what I was expecting for less than the price of a decent 6pack, but there is no way I would fly FPV relying on the EasyCap.

I just ordered this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VGA-SVGA-to-...item4cf6e114de

Ships from the US, free shipping. I gambled two and a half bucks to find out. I suspect it can't be this easy, but who knows? It will be here in 10 days it says. I'll post up then.

Well, hopefully that'll work. Because one of the rental shops here used their extra VGA monitors for some playstation consoles and each one had a powered box for converting analog to digital. If the tech has evolved and they've managed to pack all that into a single plug, that would be cool.

Why do they need to convert analog to digital? VGA is analog too
But it might provide some extra functionality RCA probably completely lacks like resolution polling and whatnot.

I think it would need to convert from digital to analog. HDMI is digital, VGA is analog.

If you have time and if you want to use with your notebook , we can send one USB Rx as a gift about 15 days later. (Windows 7/8 - 32/64bit)

We are developing a new device and we need testers.

Yeah, wrong term. Video coming from the RCA is analog, VGA is progressive. I've looked into it a bit and the RCA to VGA converters cost around $30 and they still use powered boxes. Haven't seen them in action yet but in the old ones, the interlaced nature of RCA video is *really* apparent on a VGA monitor.
