DG Aviion video

My DG Aviion Monitor is a trinitron GDM-1601. If you look it
up on the net at http://www.nashville.net/~griffin/monitor.html
My monitor shows up at 1024x768 and 1280x1024 (60hz). My monitor
has a 5 bnc connection, but when hooked up to the Aviion, it only
uses RGB. I went to Radio shack and got 3 6' 75 ohm video cables.
They work fine.

However, when I hooked the GDM-1601 up to my PC, the horz was wrong.
I'm not sure why...

Maybe that'll help.

I don't supose you happen to know offhand what the resolution and vertical
sync are.. I was unable to get my NEC Multisync 5fge to sync up. Since the
noise was green and not white, there could be something wrong with the
video section. I don't know. The 5fge is the only multisync monitor I have
that supports composite sync on green and has BNC inputs. I did verify
that it was not 1024x768 _at_ 60Hz by trying it on one of my Apollo monitors.

I'm going to see if anything is happening on either of the serial ports in
the meanwhile.

If it's truly a quadrature mouse, I'm sure a Logitech Bus mouse or similar
could be kludged up to work.
