Article #233 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: ai019@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Joe Kosman) Subject: RGB monitor to 130XE? Posted-By: xx004 (aa596 - Peter Haller) Edited-By: xx004 (aa596 - Peter Haller) Date: Sun Jun 30 20:42:33 1991 Is there any way to connect a TTL RGB color monitor to an Atari 130XE? The monitor uses reg, green, blue, intensity, Hsync, and Vsync as inputs. The Atari 130XE monitor jack has compostite video, composite chroma, and composite luminesence as outputs. I am guesing that the composite video is the Hsync and Vsync together, composite chroma is the red,blue, and green together, and luminesence is the equivalent of the intensity. Can one put together or buy hardware to separate the composite signals into those the monitor needs? Would it be possible to connect the luminesence to the monitor intensity input and end up with a monochrome display? Any help would be appreciated. ********** Answered by Peter Haller ********** As far as I know, I have never heard of a third party converter box for such a connection. It would seem that such a connection would be possible. Some form of conversion/combination of the signal from the 130XE to the TTL monitor would need to be done I expect. You might contact the manufacture of the monitor to see if they have or know of a "generic" converter to a standard RGB connector - this has been anything from BNC cables to the 5 pin din connector on the Atari's. I will do some more checking though, and post any info I can find.
