Those old monitors used to go with the old Avid
Media Composers in the
1990's (NLE video editing), they only do 800x600 and
should do 15khz which
is usable on Amigas. Which port were you using and
what did you connect to
Yeah my laptop was probably pumping out 1024 x 768
come to think of it, but that never stopped any other
monitor I've played with from displaying *something*.
But most of those have been fixed frequency. I tried
both vga connectors. I didn't have a BNC cable handy
to try out that. I didn't alter the dip switches at
all. I'll need to know what purposes 6,7, and 8 serve,
because it's not described.
I guess I should try an Amiga group to find a manual
Just for clarity, I doubt the monitor does only 800 x
600. According to the specs I found on the net, it
will sync down to 15khz, and maxs out @ 800 x 600
(36khz or so I guess).
Weird that they didn't supply a 9 pin connector. But
not really I guess since not too many people were
using them by 1992 (except for Fred C. of course LOL).
