Hi, User port connector ------------------- I've just ordered parts to make up a prlink cable, except the user port connector. Does anyone have a spare to sell me? Commodore & Magnavox (Philips) monitors --------------------------------------- I have an old Commodore 1084 monitor (PAL, UK model). This has a SCART socket for analogue RGB & composite input, which is handy for use with game consoles, VCR etc. I also have an old Commodore 1084S (PAL again). This has a 6-pin DIN socket for analogue RGB. However I can see the outline of a SCART connector on the rear panel, and looking at the PCB there is space for a SCART connector to be fitted. Finally, I found an American monitor, a Magnavox RGB Display 40. This is probably very similar to the Philips CM8833. The dot pitch is pretty poor and it can only handle TTL & analogue RGB and composite (no LCA). Still, it's the only NTSC monitor I have. Until now I couldn't view my US C64, VIC-20 & NES is colour. This too has space for a SCART socket on the PCB (there is no sign of this on the rear panel). Unlike the 1084S there is metal shielding soldered below the PCB. Removing this to fit a SCART socket will be a pain. Anyway, what I would like to know is: - Has anyone else noticed that some monitors have space for a SCART socket? - Has anyone actually tried fitting a SCART socket? If so, is it just a case of soldering in the socket, or do other components need to be added? Does the SCART fast blanking feature work on monitors which have had a SCART socket added? -- Mark - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
