Hi all, thanks for the replies - to give a progress update.
There's a chap on eBay who was selling scart leads, so I got one of those, plug a scart -> s-video adapter. I then got an s-video to VGA converter.
Unfortunately, this hasn't worked - no picture whatsoever.
Has anyone else had any experience of these boxes? Having a read through, some people some to have had some success.... I've attached pictures of the devices in question, if that helps shed some light on things. I'm sure the SCART lead works, as I've tested it on an old-skool telly, so I'm guessing that all my other lego-style connectors aren't working or I'm going to have to learn to get the knack of a soldering iron. I'm also going to try an ATARI-RCA lead (you know, the red,yellow, white ones), to see if I can cut out a component from the link.
