Re: Anyone ever attach a mono LCD to a PET?

The Magnavox 15MF605T/17 is a small LCD, cheap to get now that it is discontinued, and accepts composite, split composite, component, and VGA inputs.  I use one with my 128DCR.  I just wish it could accept the screwy almost-EGA output from the 128D.  I've never been able to use the 128D in 80 column mode, the adapters for that are pricey for what they do, which would be ok, but no one seems to like the output from them either, so I've never tried.

The boards listed on eBay claim they accept VGA input, but apparently this is false information. When converting from 15 to 31 kHz, the board worked well but when "bypassing" 31 kHz it produced an image that my VGA monitor couldn't sync to - perhaps 62 kHz or something equally stupid?
