    Good day folks.

    I have an old PC monitor. I want to use it as a monitor on survailance camera.

    Has anybody tried to use monitor as a TV? Maybe can share ideas before I go on my own experiments.

    It has a dozen wires at output, anybody has any ideas which ones are Video/Audio input?

    Appreciate ahead.

    Is the monitor already in pieces? If you want to use it for video surveillance or T.V. you can use a composite to VGA converter. I work in the IT department for a security company. I can get you model numbers if you need them. However, if the monitor is already in pieces, I don't know if I can help. Good Luck!

    The monitor is in one piece, and working ok. The only thing, I 've cut the rs232 cable connector, so there are bunch of wires now looking at me :)

    I just don't now which is what. So, you are saying I need some type of converter..I thought buy pluging an audio/video source into it will do..but now seems not..

    Anyways, thanks for ideas. And if you can suggest something more, please do so.

    THanks

    Since you cut the d-sub off, then you simply have nothing to connect anything to. Do you still have the connector you cut off? Then try to find to which pins did the wires go.
