TV signal from security camera system to a computer monitor. Answered

I have a security system and I have 2 good, working monitors (22").

I would like to hook the two together so I don't have to buy a TV set just to watch one channel.

Do not need sound.

Any ideas?

I need RCA to VGA.

I suppose I could hook up the second monitor to my computer using this and play freecell in stereovision.

If the security system only output composite TV signal, the resolution was probably not as high as you get today even with bare VGA so it would look pretty awful on an LCD monitor.

I suppose I could just buy a cheap TV at the Salvation Army Thrift store.

It's just the monitor is a flat screen 22" LCD with less than 40 hours on it.

Video capture card for your PC. Or you can get a USB video capture device if you have a laptop.

No computer involved.

Just the security camera unit and a monitor.

It normally feeds a TV.
