1084 Amiga monitor with Catbox and Jag

Recommended Posts

I heard the 1084 monitor will work with the RGB and the Catbox. Can someone please give some advice on how this is made workable? I've tried it, but just get a garbled signal.

What cable are you using?

I'm using a standard RGB cable or so I thought.

 

Is there anything special that needs to be wired or done? Does this typically work without problem with a standard RGB cable? (If so, might be my cable.)

 

Thanks!

If it's just a straight through 9 pin cable then that is the problem. The catbox and monitor use different DB9 pinouts, for mine I sniped off one end of the cable and wired up a new DB9 connecter using the correct pinouts.

So where can I find how to make a catbox RBG cable? (Pinouts and all) All I have to say is how lame to make a standard looking RGB port and not have it be all that standard. Just dumb!

 

Anyway, thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this pinout question.

I just read about your problems and have another question in that regard. I bought a SVIDEO cable to connect my Catbox to the Tv.

The image is there but with very strange colours. They are very very strong, like also white spots have some colour :-) And the picture isn't very sharp. Anyone have any clue?

Is it that something has to be wired differently?

Did anyone encounter sonething like that before?

Thanks

I don't recall the pinouts offhand. They are listed in their respective manuals both of which are available online. I don't recall the URLs but a Google search should turn them up. If you can't find them let me know and I'll see if I can dig them up.

 

I have no idea on the S-Video problem, mine works fine with a standard cable.
