Just had a quick butchers around google and apparently there aint many adapters that do it, and apparently the ones that do are very expensive.

ill look a bit more into it later, dont have a lot of time at the moment

funnily enough i have a dvi-d sex changer (female to female) which would enable me to use a DVD-D single link male to VGA male adaptor if you had one?
