I have an extra 19" HP LCD monitor with VGA and 1/8" audio ins that I would love to connect my old consoles to - how can I go about this? Also is there a good AV switcher for these devices?

I want to connect my NES, Sega Genesis, Atari 2600, etc

thanks!

I know the NES as composite out and I believe the Sega will as well, but I'm not sure on the Atari. If all three do have composite output you could probably find a AV switcher with VGA/DVI out. I'd guess about $50 or so and that would probably do the job for you. Depending on the audio output of any such box you would probably also need a cable to convert to 1/8" which would cost less than $10.

Yeah, assuming you're LCD lacks component inputs, a Component->VGA converter makes the most sense...

Oops, saw that the monitor had sound input just now, you maybe be able to find a similar adapter to the above, just with a male headphone plug.
