    Default RF to PVM?

    What is the most painless way of connecting a game console that has RF to a PVM monitor that doesnt have RF female jacks? I have BNC ports above the audio RCA jacks as well as S video, VTR, and a serial port. It is a Sony PVM-2530.

    Yes I know RF looks like crap and there are much better options.

    Vigorously lick the coaxial end of the RF line meant for the display side, then insert between your buttocks.

    Take an RCA cable and suck on one end, then plug the other into an RCA to BNC adapter. Connect this to the PVM and you're good to go.

    Back in the day, companies used to sell TV tuners meant for use with stereo systems and decoding then-new MTS stereo broadcasts (back when you sometimes saw a "In Stereo (Where Available)" graphic before some TV shows). I have a Sony ST-7TV which has an analog cable/antenna tuner, various indicators for MTS reception and input selection, two antenna/cable inputs (plus one labeled "TO CONVERTER", whatever that means), composite video/audio outputs, and a separate RF converter/video modulator section. I'm not 100% sure, but it might even be able to tune channels 95/96 (IIRC) as corresponds to the Japanese channel outputs of the original Nintendo Famicom, but I haven't tried it for this purpose yet. Other than an old VCR or a purpose-built (and likely very expensive) RF demodulator, something like this might be your best bet.
