I think it's the 5-pin connector for the power, and the 8-pin connector
for the video. Which sounds safe. :)

I'll try to trace the pins as you suggested in another post, Tony, and get
back later. But I don't have an oscilloscope or logic analyser to help
figure out the video signal. Which makes me regret not picking up those
old oscilloscopes that I saw at a garage sale last year, only a couple of
miles from here. :/
