It's well over a year since I last had them plugged in so I can't remember
what monitor I was trying to use; at the time I got an un-sync'd blue BIOS
screen so at least they powered up. Nowadays I've got more monitors than I
know what to do with, but they all belong to machines that will eventually
be exhibited. The old Amsturd PC series monitors (and therefore the Sinclair
PC200, which is an Amsturd PC20 in a black case, which essentially contains
the motherboard of the PPC series of portable machines) were either CGA or
EGA so they may work with the RMs.
If I remember tomorrow I'll dig one of each out and try it.

I'll live in hope then :)
