You can find little boxes on ebay that take CVBS or S-Video in and have 
VGA and/or HDMI output incl. upscaling.

Someting like

Problem is, not all of them produce a good picture with a C64, some are 
excellent and some don't like the C64 at all. This is especially a 
problem in Europe since PAL is 50Hz. With the wrong one, soft scrolling 
isn't soft anymore.

Hope this helps some.
