    Has anyone found a VGA adapter that will work with the X-Box for playing 4:3 and 16:9 at 480p, 720p and or 1080i? I guess you know where this is leading up to, but working Friday nights is less than thrilling. So, I am considering encouraging a friend to stop using his 13" portable TV with his X-Box and instead the 21" monitors on all of our desks, and maybe through a KVM switch, too.

    Anyone know of a VGA adapter that is inexpensive--is there such a thing? I know one was made available for the Sega Dreamcast (another friend has it), but ...

    I'd be curious if the second link is a "real" VGA box or just a line doubler, especially at that price.

    Do Redant make "real" VGA boxes? All the previous ones I've seen have been line doublers.
