I've done it, for testing purposes. IIRC, I used the DEC cable which
ended in BNC, joined, by using BNC/BNC straight adapters, to a
BNC to HD15 cable, to a SONY 5 BNC Multisync Monitor ( Sony,
Radius, Rasterops, HP branded ? whichever is handy at the time).
Probably only hooked R,G, and B though. The Sonys can accept
separate sync ( all 5 BNC's connected ), composite sync ( 4 BNC's
connected ), and sync on green ( 3 BNC's connected ), and will
autosense and autoswitch to the correct sync type. Never took it all
the way to a GUI though. Just wanted to get a text screen to make
sure the box was alive.
