There are several ways to hook a vcr up to a PC monitor, but most of them depend on the outputs of the vcr and inputs and other features of the monitor. The easiest and usually cheapest way is to buy a tv tuner for your PC. These tuners cost from $20-$200. Another way is to use a vga box which will de-interlace the vcr input and upscale the rez for the monitor. If your vcr has rca component out and the moniter supports sync on green then you could use a straight through component to vga adapter. Also some older monitors as well as fairly expensive new ones may have some type of rca or s-video input.

Is it possible to connect xbox 360 and PC at a same time to one lcd monitor?

I have a Sony HDTV that could connect a PC to and use as a PC monitor and also could have a PS3 or a Xbox 360 connected with the HDMI connections. So it is possible in that way, but the HDTV would not let the Console and PC operate on the same monitor at the same time. I believe the new internet TV from Sony would allow the split screen operation of internet and console at the same time, but that is only the internet function and not a complete PC.
