Indeed, this monitor has both
But still, there is some difference in the pinout.
There is no intensity line (that's good), but it uses a composite sync,
while the CoCo has H Sync and V Sync.
Pin Number RGB Analog Mode
7 Composite Sync
Torsten mentions using the composite video signal for that... I guess
is either that or use Mike's little adapter (I would have to get the 5v
out of somewhere inside. I really can't plug another thing)
Thanks to all
> I have a 1084S that I made my own cable for, and I did not have to invert any signals. I used an old PC serial port cable (DB-9 to 10-pin IDC.) Cut off the DB-9 connector and replace it with the opposite sex and a few feet of mini-coax or appropriate cabling. Picture quality is outstanding and the composite input means you can still see artifact colors if you want (yay!) Remember that the 1084S has analog and digital inputs (at least mine does), and the CoCo3 requires you to use the analog input, which should not have an "intensity" line.
