ok so here i am with an update on the cable i ordered
arrived today and first try...nothing, my monitor didn't wanna spit out any images saying the input is out of range...
so i took a break and used the USB tv tuner i got before just to play awhile...then i took a look at the box it came with, it said to use the colorless green input cable and connect it to the video input on my monitor/HDTV (which i don't have)
so i had to connect it to the tv tuner stick and set the resolution...the tricky part is when i set it to 1080i the display shows in the tv tuner program but it's all fuzzy and snowstormy (if that's even what you call it)
so i just played a guessing game and pressed a couple of buttons and gave it a whack and connected the VGA cable to the monitor...VOILA!!! SUCCESS!!!
the monitor was displaying 720p, but the aspect ratio was a bit messed up so i thought i'd give it a whirl with 1080i...amazingly my monitor accepted that and showed it in 1080i and the borders were just about right but not perfect
so in conclusion the cable DOES WORK...but it needs a bit of guessing and i guess if you don't have a tv tuner stick or something of the sort you're not gonna be able to change the display output to that of the D-Terminal...right now both the PC and PS3 are connected to the same monitor and with a press of a button on the monitor i can switch from the PS3 to the PC and vice versa
if there are any questions do feel free to ask
