Wanting to play a N64 on my 24" LCD Monitor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys

I found my old Nintendo 64 today with a couple of choice games.

Obviously back in the day I had a much smaller TV that I hooked the console up to and that was no problems

I now have a Panasonic 50" X10A HD TV and even though the game works using RCA cables, the resolution is very poor, due to obvious reasons.

My questions is, can I buy some kind of adapter that will go from my RCA connections to a VGA plug so I can plug it into my monitor, I figure trying to play it on a 24 " is going to look a lot better then trying to stretch it over 50"

I had a look on Ebay and all I could find was VGA to RCA cables, I am guessing that this will not work for what I want?

Better yet, buy a simple USB -> RCA and go from PC to TV that way. Or find a USB based stick. They still have those in shops around the internet.


N64 USB controller

Tuner Capture Card. One of the best.

How about this guy?


Looks like the last one they have. Find a similar item by googling N64 to VGA or N64 to PC or N64 to monitor.
