Monitor -> [ADC - DVI] + [DVI - VGA] + [VGA - Mini-VGA] -> iBook

LOL I had to do this as well! What a mission! You will go adapter crazy! :lol:

You may find a new DVI + VGA 17" TFT PC Monitor and appealing alternative as they are getting pretty cheap now and you wouldn't need to buy anything else ( if you have the mini VGA to VGA adaptor that comes with the iBook).

you will probably have a hard time hunting down the adapater you need.
As im sure you know you cant use a standard adc-dvi adapter on the crt adc monitor as its analog not digital

Also buy the time you add up the cost of all those adapters you could buy a 17" LCD. :lol:

That is the most simple way I have ever seen a wiring diagram done. Nice. You should have written the manual for the V3. Now that is a headspin!!! :blink:
