This is the converter board I use.

Do not buy the cheaper ones that look the same they don’t work the same look for the Gonbes brand.

 

When shopping for monitors look for one that has a PC input with a DB15 plug. Also test the store’s display unit set it to PD input then unplug the power, wait30 seconds plug it back in do not buy ones that do not power up and stay on the PC input. Less than half will.

 

I found a DB15 to BNC cable that made for an easy install at my local electronics junk store.

 

The only other connection is the +5 DC voltage.

Walta,

 

Bringing back this old thread.  I purchased the items listed above in order to install a lcd tv in my top skate game but I have having trouble using the components.

 

 

Do I hook the BNC to DB15 cable from the front of top skater right to the  Video converter board and then out of the board right to the LCD tV or Computer monitor to test this out?  

 

Thank you
