VGA to RGB

Trying to get my Sony laptop (K13) to output video to a Panasonic
H1350 video monitor. Monitor IS getting signal but seems to have sync
issues, which I can't seem to resolve w/ WinXP settings. I'm using a
VGA to 5 RGB cable. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Thanks,
Bill

I assume the Panasonic only handles RGB at NTSC rates, i.e. 60 Hz
interlaced-vertical and 15.734 kHz horizontal scanning frequencies.
Most computer video cards will not go that low out the VGA port. You
may have to convert to composite video or to S-video to use your
Panasonic.

What do you have the VGA port set to emit?

The BT-H1350Y video monitor appears to be a TV video only
monitor. If you are lucky, it will accept 640x480 @60Hz
progressive (non-interlaced). If you are unlucky, it will demand
interlaced, which you may or may not be able to select.

Even if it can display S-VGA (800x600), it's apt to not be
able to fully resolve all pixels.

I took the cable mention to mean that the monitor has RGBhv
BNC inputs. When that is the case, as it was on some Sony
XBRs, they could accept ~VGA resolution progressive signal at 60Hz.

It's not clear here what the OP is attempting. Using this CRT
as a PC display is likely a waste of effort even if it can be made
to work. Using it just to display SD video may be more effort
than it's worth, considering that working VGA and SVGA monitors
can be found for free in trash bins.
