I am having trouble guessing what you are looking for. Is the DVI connector broken (O am guessing the one you call 31 pins), or you need a DVI to VGA (15 pin) adapter, or ?

That has nothing to do with pins. It converts one type of video connection to another. What you have is a monitor. How are you using it as a TV? What is it connected to? A computer with a TV tuner?

I don't get it. It's a monitor. I don't see how it can connect directly to a VCR, and I have no idea what kind of connection on a monitor has 31 pins. Can you upload a picture?

I am talking about the "Media Station" box that comes with the monitor. the "Media Station" box is broken so I need to replace it with something else

So you need another "Media Station" box. An adapter and cable aren't going to connect a monitor to a VCR.

It makes sense now, the L2320A has the Media Station box with video and USB connectors and apparently a non-standard interface between them. The only information I could find is on LG's Russia site, but I can't read it so couldn't find a manual.

Do you have a manual, or a photo of the 31 pin connector?

It looks like the L2320A has an attached cable which is called P&D (also M1-D). It is an old VESA standard that pre-dates DVI: http://web.archive.org/web/20030704041337/www.vesa.org/public/PnD/pnd.pdf.

The connector looks like a dual link DVI-I, except it has six extra pins; amd supports USB and firewire connections.

This won't answer your question about the XC-4873 unit you bought, but at least you know how the connector is wired if it follows the standard.
