Rgb intensity line

I'm not sure what needs to be done but almost sure a resistor to ground is not likely to be the answer. Give it a try without it first.

Subject: Rgb intensity line

I am fashioning an RGB cable from parts.  The computer (LNW80) does not
send an "intensity" signal, it is only a 6pin rgb.  The magnavox rgb 80
display that I wish to use to receive has a pin for an intensity signal.
Other than "intensity" the rgb signals can be matched up.

Question...what happens when a computer does not send an intensity signal
to a display that has this input?  I will find out soon enough but I am
curious to ask before I begin should anyone have a suggestion.  Do I need
to add a resistor off of ground or something to fix it to something?
