Before it quit working I used an Amiga 1080 monitor with my CoCo 3. I
hacked a little circuit into my CoCo three and sent the appropriate
signal out through the unused pin on the CoCo 3 video connector. That
with a custom cable leading to the DB9 connector for the 1080 was all
that was necessary. The signal levels are the same as are the scan

I would try it. It has a DB23F on the Amiga end and a sub-DB15F on the
other. The unit gets its power from the Amiga video connector.
