        Good score. The boards sound like the TBC IV or TBC IV Plus.
The BNC's should be:

        video in, video out, timing in, timing out.

        The RJ-11 should be the serial connection and the 5-pin DIN
should be the S-video in. You could supposedly have up to four of
these boards daisychained together.

        Of course, I could be wrong <g> That's what it sounds like though.
