I might approach might differ from my last post based on another question and supplies I have sitting;
The question is;
Are the 5 Pin Din Monitor/Display Connectors found on the backs of the TI-994A, Commodore machines, and Atari 8 bits all the same basic configurations?
Meaning if I bought a 5 pin Din to RCA Composite(similar to the Amazon link below); (tried to figure things out based on the user comments - two guys said they had luck with the cable for a Vic and TI994A)
Will the cable work for all the mentioned above machines? Or another way to phrase the question will the above cable work on my Atari 800 XL if used in a standard composite TV connection?
Reason I am changing things around is I have the below parts already sitting and have had decent luck with both of the below for other applications in my home/collection. Also I can always swap out/Remove the HDMI to VGA cable in the future and plug in a more modern monitor or TV.
3 RCA to HDMI ($11.63 - I bought my last one for like 8 dollars)
HDMI to VGA ($2.50)
VGA Flat Panel Monitor
If the answer is no due to the wire being wrongly setup...I have found many you tube videos where you can create your own composite cable using a 5 pin din and RCA wire set which I am considering as I have a boat load of the RCA wire sets.... and the 5 pin din connectors are like 5 for $2.50.
