VT180/Robin system help needed

Picked up 2 boxes full of VT180 stuff from a ex Digital employee.

Got a keyboard, Vt100 and robin board, small "backplane" board, 2
Shuggart 400L Digital branded drives and 4 RX50-AA drives. Also got a
VT100 keyboard and a VT100 power supply and several cables. Seems
everything is there except VT100 case/crt...could always build this in
some full/half tower AT PC case...still I will hunt for a VT100...this
is for collecting and not using really...

The owner told me the Robin board was modified to use 1M drives (?).
There are a couple ou wire jumpers on the Robin board. Also got some
disks, Robin schematics, a few CP/M manuals...

Questions:(I have not looked at the schematics yet......)

2 BNC connectors on the Robin board. Whats coming outta there? video? on
both? composite?

What drives should I be using to boot the Robin? The RX50-AAs or the
Shugarts 400L?

I see 2 DB25 ports on the Robin board and a larger (DBxx) on the VT100
board, anything special?

DIP switches on VT100...whats the deal there?

Anything else I should look out for?

Anybody know where VT180 info is available...I would like to see the
guts of one...

Thanks for the Help again
