Sniper, your VGA monitor is a 30 kHz type, while MSX needs a 15 kHz TV type monitor. You can’t use a simple cable to connect systems made for TVs to VGA monitors. Converter boxes like XRGB are one possible solution, but they are expensive and may introduce latency. So it may be cheaper to get a separate 15 kHz TV / monitor especially for your MSX and other retro systems / consoles.

Solved.....
Yesssssssssssssss.....

- I connected the turbo R SCART to SCART/HDMI converter
- Then from the other side of the converter, I connected HDMI/VGA converter that I plugged into CRT Monitor Male-VGA.

Since the Monitor has no sound, I connected speakers to HDMI converter.

Now it is perfect.... Real MSX pictures with great quality sound system......

Moral of story...... I LOVE MSX
