I have a TIVO that I want to hook up to a computer monitor that is capable of both VGA and HDMI. Are there converters/cables that can handle this? The TIVO is a Toshiba Tivo Series 2 and has SVIDEO and RGB outputs.

I am trying to avoid having to buy a TV to hookup to the Tivo

What you've got are component video outputs (the red, green, and blue jacks in the back http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=541359&ppid=1122&image=178658006&images=178657894,178657926,178657972,178658006&formats=0,0,0,0&format=0), and you need a component-to-VGA converter: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/component-video-to-vga-rgb-hv/pyro-av-pvc-988/prodPVC988.html

Be careful of single cables that say they will do this - they are designed for video cards that output component signals, which most do not.
