We have an IBM AIX system running, but lately the monitor is slowing
dying. The monitor is an IBM 6091-19, and according to
monitorworld.com, it is rated at 63.36/81.32 Khz/60/67/77 Hz horizontal
and vertical frequency respectively, sync on green, 1280x1024 max
resolution, 5 BNC connector.
So, thinking that all I had to do is match some of these numbers, I
recently bought a Sony monitor (actually a SuperMac monitor) model
#GDM-1950, sync on green, 5 BNC connector, 1280x1024 max resolution,
with rated horz. and vert. freq of 63.34KHz/60Hz respectively.
So, I plugged the monitor in, and while the image does appear, it is
messed up with respect to the "vertical hold"--kinda like the old TV
sets where it would continue to "roll" the image. Adjustments on the
front of the monitor did nothing to change the effect.
According to SMIT, the graphics adaptors are GXT100 and GXT150. Also,
looking around in SMIT, I found a place which is supposed to allow
display refresh rate changes, but SMIT reported that it wasn't possible
to change those values.
So, did I just waste my money on this new monitor? Any help that I
could get on this would be greatly appreciated. I guess another option
would be to get a different video card, but the IBM system is fairly
old, and requires ISA boards, not PCI boards.
Thanks again for any help with this.
