I have a cable TV box that has HDMI, Svideo, and component outputs. I would like to connect to to my computer monitor but it only has VGA and DVI. I know they sell HDMI to DVI cables but I wanted to see if I could make something.

I wanted to see if I could use a DVI or VGA cable and some RCA cables and hack something together so I could get it working.
