Monitor on a DVD player?

I have a couple of 19" CRT monitors kicking around standard analog
input), and was wondering if there is any easy way
to connect one to the video out on a portable DVD player.

Advice appreciated --

Advice appreciated --
If by analog input you mean rgb/composite input via rca jack
connectors then the answer is: most likely yes, if your dvd
player has svideo or composite out. There are splitters from
svideo to rgb around.

If you are talking d-sub connectors, then I wouldn't know how.
Never looked into that. Might be possible to solder up or buy a
connector/convertor.

I used a monitor with composite input from a vcr for many years
in lieu of a tv set.

Svideo to RGB? Yuck. May as well use a TV and skip the need to
convert.

And that would need to be more than a "splitter" or cable, anyway.
The scanning-rates are not compatible.
Well I just bought a new (vivo)video card for a neighbour's
machine last week and it had one of those 'splitters' in the
box.

And you're absolutely right about my old monitor, it was a C=64
monitor. But the Dell 3008 monitor that I had sitting here 2
months ago has the 3 rca-jack component inputs ... see picture

As does my el-cheapo dvd player that I use for playing music in
my workshop.
