What makes the best monitor?

Post by Andrew Kri » Thu, 21 Jun 1990 22:39:28

I just moved recently and had to give up the 19" TV I had been using as my
800/XE monitor for the last 9 years.  Now I don't have my old system set up
all.  I'm going into XE withdrawal!  Luckily I have my ST set up to keep me
from going catatonic.

Anyway, I want to set up the old XE again, and was wondering what is the best
monitor for an XE?  Does a composite monitor give you significantly better
resolution than a TV?  I like to play games, so is bigger better (i.e. stick
with a 19" TV).  Would a 13" TV suffice?  What are the best composite
monitors currently available?  Which have the best resolution?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

1. Problem making up a monitor lead....

    I'm currently trying to make a lead to connect my ST to a Hitachi CPT 1444.
    Unfortunately it doesn't seem to want to work!

    Everything works except that the picture breaks up when there is a large
 amount of white on screen, to the extent that a totally white screen results
 in a loss of vertical lock/hold.
    I put this down to having used the composite video as the sync input!
 (Vertical Sync from the ST doesn't work at all)
    The Hitachi documentation refers to "Sync (-ve)" on the pin diagram whereas
 the ST documentation offers "Vertical Sync" & "Composite Video" pins.

    Can anyone tell me the correct way to do it? [please!!]

    Any help is greatly appreciated, Simon.
