I am investigating the use of my old Toshiba Win 98 lap-top with the Silverleaf system. Danny was kind enough to confirm that Win 98 will interface with the Silverleaf data system and cable.

I'd also like to interface the Toshiba with the rear view camera, which currently displays on the large built-in TV operating off the Inverter. If this can be done, I will be able to operate the Toshiba from a small Inverter while driving, hopefully displaying what is behind me and the Silverleaf data in a split-screen or toggle mode.

Now for the question:

Do any of you know where I can find an adapter that will allow an F-pin cable (standard TV cable input) to interface with a computer's USB or Serial Port? In other words, allowing a computer to display direct TV input.

Thanks in advance.
