as far as i read, all these are kabels to connect a scart-OUTPUT to an VGA-INPUT.
(scart-out of receiver to vga-in of a beamer/lcd-tv)
These cables are useless for connecting a VGA-card to a monitor, as they do not
handle the vga-sync-singals correct.
If you use them, you probably won't get a picture and perhaps will fry your
tv and/or vga-card.....
