Does anyone know or know where to look for the specs on a Radio ShackVGM-480
ICQ UIN 2117831
The subject says it all really. We have here an old SGI 4D35 standing
around that we don't really want to use for anything else then for
http server/file storage. However, the monitor is still good and I
could easily link it up to my Linux PC, if only I had the timing
specs needed for XFree86 (Hsync, Vsync, etc etc) - I know it runs at
1280x1024, 60Hz - I guess it's fixed freq.
The model number is
What I need to generate eventually is something like this, but for
# Horizontal Sync = 31.5kHz
# Timing: H=(0.95us, 3.81us, 1.59us), V=(0.35ms, 0.064ms, 1.02ms)
# name clock horizontal timing vertical timing flags
"640x480" 25.175 640 664 760 800 480 491 493 525
and what I need for that are all the timing specs (Hsync, Vsync, pulse
widths etc etc). Can anybody help? Alternatively, can anybody tell me who
manufactures these really? Is it Sony? Philips?
Another thing: at the back it has 4 Coax connectors (one for each colour,
one for sync), but it only uses the three colour connectors. Does this
mean it overlays sync on one of the colours (green)? Can it handle it if
I were to use the fourth connector from my sync on my video card, or do I
have to switch my card to sync-on-green?
Can anybody help?
