I'm fairly new to the collecting scene and I'm looking for a monitor I
can use with some of my systems. I'm mainly interested in the 8bit home
computers, spectrum, c64, atari, dragon, bbc etc

I'd like to know if there is a particular type of monitor that can be
used on the above machines. I'd like to buy, say one, I can use with all
of the above.

I know there seems to have been a few different methods used in
producing the video signals and, from reading newsgroups, I get the
impression that it is sometimes possible to select video outputs/monitor
inputs such that, even if the monitor is not directly compatible, a
reasonable result can be obtained.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
