Answers :

Engagetek, This would be a very easy thing to do if and only if the label on the rear of the unit has printing similar to my GATEWAY LCD. It states as follows: "100 - 240VAC input 50/60hz." If your Amstrad unit's label reads "220-240VAC 50/60hz only, then you will need to reverse engineer the "ac to dc" power supply, be it an old "linear" or a modern "switch-mode-power-supply" type. You did not state what type of monitor technology your Amstrad is. CRT, LCD, Plasma,???? I would guess that it is a CRT type. Well anyway, I hope the info was of some use.

Any help would be appreciated. Oh, it go directly to the TV, I would need to convert the PC's VGA to coaxial. I thought it would be easier going through the VCR's RGB.
