    You need a cable that converts the USB to an RCA input. And then you have to convert the power.

    If I remember, I will get the parts and numbers for ya. Unless someone beats me to it.

    Re: Does anyone know how to Work LCD screens?

    Generally, you solder the pin-outs of a computer's serial or parallel cable (not series-parallel) to the logicboard of the LCD. Then, you run software on the computer that communicates with the LCDs.

    Typical use for computer's LCDs are CPU temp, Fan speed, MP3 playing, etc.
    But loads more uses.

    So to use an LCD with any sort of programmability - you'll need a computer.
    So, you may as well use the computer as your digital music player as well, enabling your computer to know what MP3 is playing, so it can display it on the LCD, etc, etc.

    Have fun.

    I beleive what you are looking for is a way to make the RGB inputs accept NTSC or PAL input. Right? Look for a VGA video converter.
