I was recently looking around Amazon and I came across this:

It's a cable that converts composite video to a VGA signal, This would be perfect for a VGA based Replica 1 screen.

I have one of those. It's actually a VGA cable for a computer to allow it to output to a TV, not the other way around. For instance, if your laptop only has a VGA out, you can plug that cable in and should be able to get a second screen on a TV/old style monitor.

Wow, I just ordered one for a media PC to my TV, nice adapter. They were as low as $1.77 plus shipping! I've been meaning to get something like this for a while now.

No, it won't convert replica 1 video to VGA, Bill is correct, it goes the other way, VGA out to a TV.

Well, as I thought, it doesn't convert VGA to TV, it will only work on a system that the card can output TV signals via VGA. Oh well, doesn't do what I needed.
