    Nope, you need a composite video to VGA scan converter. I've used this model several times in interface applications.

    You can't do what you want. The yellow RCA connector is for composite video; VGA has separate colors.

    You can buy converters to do the conversion from composite video to something supported by a PC monitor.

    A constructive comment. Your post was more difficult to read than it needed to be because you didn't use paragraphs to organize your thoughts, or use proper grammar.

    You cant do it like that, you need to convert tbe Composite video to Vga/Rca with an adapter .
