He's probably just hooking them directly up to the LCD given that looks to be a 2405FPW (same as the one I'm typing on now hehe), and that has 1 DVI, 1 VGA, 1 S-Video, 1 Component, 1 Composite connection to play with. Doing that he could hook up the DC via either the Composite, S-Vid, or VGA - my guess VGA. PS2 then occupying the S-Video port. XBox could technically work on the component connection, but given its on a CRT he probably has a VGA converter.

*tangent*And I can't look at that wallpaper without thinking of Scrapped Princess - even though I really can't really tell with that little showing*/tangent*

Edit: Now that I focus more on the monitor instead of the wallpaper, its not the 2405 - the smaller widescreen version praps? Or is it even widescreen... the skew makes it hard to tell. Regardless, the connections of most upper end Dell LCDs are mostly similar. I'd imagine it'd fit my previous description save for praps the component - heck my old 2000FP has DVI/VGA/S-Vid/Composite hehe.

Powernotebooks crew represent.

The PS2 and Dreamcast are using the S-Video and composite RCA inputs on the LCD (Dell 2001FP). One of these days I'm going to break down and order a VGA box for the Dreamcast from Play-Asia or Lik-Sang. The Xbox is attached to the CRT using an X2VGA adapter, and to the Pioneer SE-DIR800C (Dolby Headphone processor, the wireless headphone portion of which is hanging on the left side of the LCD) sitting on top of the CRT using a cheap toslink cable. My Soundstorm-capable PC is also connected to the Pioneer unit through the digital coax input. The Pioneer pumps its processed signal through a mini->RCA cable to the analog input of my 0404. The Dreamcast is hooked up to the same input, using RCA splitters. The PS2 is attached to the 0404's optical input. The 0404 goes to the amp (Headsave Classic, the blue light in the bottom center of the pic above the Grados), and from there to the HD595s sitting on the keyboard.

Oh, and the wallpaper is something someone else made. I'm not sure of what anime it's from, but I liked it, so I snagged it and resized it for my own use (it was meant to be used as a dual-monitor wallpaper). Here's the original, it's kinda huge.

Where did you get the mat?

mall fi currently being worked out as I type.

DDR? at home I only play singles because I have one pad.

At the arcade, Im a doubles heavy player.
Im the freak that plays maniac Maxx 300 on both pads running back and forth, along with paranoia survior mix doubles heavy and so on, and have been a contestant in various large tournaments that involve players from different parts of the country.

Im not a scorer but used to compete in freestyle tournements.

those that wonder what something like maxx 300 is, its a song in which you run across the platform 300 beat per minute.

Nice. Yea, see, my 1905FP doesn't have the composite/component/s-video ports. Dammit.

I rip all of my CDs to lossless and then I use my PC as my primary source indeed. It's much more comfortable to have access to your music that way. I also use vinyls of course...but CDs I rarely use anymore, don't need that with the DAC.

Well, I don't get component, either. Just composite, s-video, DVI, and VGA. The 2405FPW has component, and I'd love to own one, but the 2001FP is plenty big and nice as it is, so even assuming I had the budget to buy one (I don't) I don't really think I could convince myself that it would be worth it at this point.

May I suggest a cheap TV capture card? I hear Leadtek makes some that pair nicely with DScaler for some excellent picture quality. I'd recommend AGAINST getting one with hardware video encoding, as those tend to cause a lag, which isn't really acceptable for games.

Wallpaper is from Mahou Sensei Negima. =) And yeah, while the 2405 is nice, if you already have a nice CRT, and that LCD, then its not really needed. However since when has geek stuff ever been a thing of need?
