From that page: This adapter will absolutely not convert an s-video or composite video signal to VGA. It will not work backwards.

Are you trying to drive a monitor without RCA ins from the BK9?

well, yes, I'm trying to use a computer monitor with only VGA in. Can I convert composite to VGA?
I"ve had bad experiences with TV breaking and such - there's tons of cheap VGA monitors out there.

With new monitors with composite available for <$50, why bother with a kludge?

OK that's a great idea I was not aware of. I shall 'retire' my VGA.
Is that $50 in that 'funny' money?

Fun spending it, anyway!

Let us know your choice, and how well it works out for you. Been thinking of getting one for my BK-7m for quite a while (I have a harder time than you spending my money, LOL!).

My other alternative I'm working on lately is to use an iPhone (nice small one!) and record my SMF's as MP3's (and embed lyrics), then use QMIDI to generate a small movie file that scrolls the lyrics.

My main issue is, I hate my audience seeing me read off a huge iPad or monitor while I play... I guess I'm just old school, but the artists of my day never read their charts or lyrics on stage. I wonder when all that changed? The iPhoneSE is tiny, barely noticeable (no larger than the BK-9 display), but it's hard to conceal a big monitor/iPad!

I've had a close look at the site and I do not see how it derives it's power! AC? Is it battery powered? DC?

I took a look at one of these products: 7" HD Native 1024x600 Rear View LCD and I could see a red DC input.

On the bottom of the page I see the info of the "ports" mentioning 9-35v DC input
and below that a link to optional accessories e.g. a power adaptor: DC 12V AC AdapterDC12V

Roland E-80 V2.03 + SRX-06 + SR-G01, FC-7, PK-5, SC-8820 and EMU Xboard61.

The monitor I linked to has a normal 12v bayonet jack on the rear.

The RCA's have nothing to do with power!

BTW, I really wouldn't recommend getting one from Hong Kong in the US or EU. Plenty of dealers in your own area!

Would you mind posting a link to the exact model you chose?

This might help others thinking of the same route. Perhaps in a few weeks after starting to use it, you might give us your impressions of how well it is working for you, mounting issues, general thoughts etc.?

Thanks...
