I use a 20" sgi monitor (20d11) with a sync convertor, this works with a
normal pc, sgi , vax's and sun machines. The bad news is I can't
remember where I got it from, it was from the US and it converts
sync-on-green both ways. It is a vga convertor but with a vga cable and
2 13w3 connectors, it does the job and has done for about 3 years.
The only thing I remember about it is looking at uk sites and finding
they where around ?100,. The one I got worked out around $40, which is
not bad when converted to pounds
