I have a Sceptre NagaIII x20 and their site says I need a special cable to convert component to DVI. I was wondering if there is a way I can plug regular RCA (non-HD, like PS2 and Xbox1) into this monitor using some kind of converter.

Thanks.

You will need a convertor/scaler like this one

Its not going to be cheap, but it is possible. A HTPC if you have one could do it for you, if you have a VIVO card like a 7800.

I know exactly what you are talking about, since I owned that lcd for a little less than a day. Try contacting Naga themselves to see if they know anything. I'm _guessing_ its just a simple adapter to the analog porton of what can go over the DVI Analog cables.

Something like this maybe:
DVI-A to Component RCA

(note, this was a shop I just randomly found in google. I know nothing about that shop)

DVI to component (3 plugs) is easy and cheap. DVI to composite (just the one yellow plug) is harder and expensive.
