Convert old LCD monitor to digital photo frame Answered

I have a Dell 15" LCD monitor I'm not using anymore. I'm thinking maybe I could make a nice wall mountable picture frame. I have a Digital Decor Photo Viewer with HD component YPbPr & standard composite video outputs. The LCD only has VGA. Is this doable? I'd like to make a nice wood housing to put the screen in and to conceal the photo viewer, like an all-in-one unit. Is there a way to get the video from viewer to LCD that won't break the bank? Thanks.

Yes i think so.. as one can go from vga to dvi, once you have dvi, you can then go to hdmi, then to YPbPr. I wouldn't suggest using all those connectors/adapters. But it shows that it can be done.
