I'm attempting to set up some older consoles to run into my PC monitor. The monitor is a 2 year old ASUS with HDMI, DVI, and VGA inputs. The consoles are NES, PS2, N64 and Gamecube.
Right now I have the consoles running into an AV Switcher via their own RCA cables. The Switcher only outputs RCA or S-Video, so I bought a component (5 cords) to HDMI (female) converter, then a short HDMI (male-male) to get to the monitor. RadioShack Man said to just use the green component cable in the yellow RCA output of the switcher, which from what I read elsewhere should work.
All this and nothing outputs from any console. I know the PS2, N64, and HDMI input work (Chromecast works great in the same port), so I'm thinking it must be either the switcher is bad or something about the switcher-to-component-to-HDMI isn't kosher.
Can anyone shed some light?
