I finally dragged out my original NEC Multisync monitor. Problem is the video cable is missing. It needs a male/male dsub 9 cable. Anyone have an idea where I can get my hands on one? Can a 9pin serial cable work (for example something like this (http://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=102&cp_id=10212&cs_id=1021201&p_id=439&seq=1&format=2))? Or are the pin outs not straight through? Thanks.

It will probably work, but I'd get a shorter one--crosstalk in a cable like this might produce some artifacts.

I use straight-through 2 metre serial cable on mine without issue - but I haven't tried pushing any of the higher resolution modes.

Thanks. I may go with a short 6' cable just to be on the safe side. As far as I know the max res. on this monitor is about 800x600 so you can't really it for much past PGA/VGA.

For the 1402 the pin assignment is

GND GND R G B GND - H/HV V

Sync on green automatic if H or CS not used

... As far as I know the max res. on this monitor is about 800x600...It's actually 800x560.

If you want the complete specs lemme know and I'll post a link.

I also have a 1st gen NEC Multisync, and it does 800x600 just fine. I used it for long time with an ATI Mach 8 and later with Mach 32 EISA Ultra Pro in 800x600 and I was quite happy with it. But at the moment I use it often as digital montior on my ATARI PC 3 CGA/EGA machine.

The model he has, NEC Multisync JC-1401P3A, only does 800x560 according to the specs.

What model do you have?

It's actually 800x560.

My Mitsubishi AUM-1381 Diamond Scan is also rated at 800x560, but it does 800x600 and even interlaced 1024x768 just fine.

Thanks Stone. But I have the file that was posted in another thread a while back. I found it while looking around to see if my question had already been answered ;).

In either case the JC-1401P3A works for most applications I would use it for as I would not go past PGA/VGA. Now if I could ever find the JC-2001 (MultiSync XL) that boy was rated to 1024x768 at 20". Only issue with it is that it does not do CGA! But I can't complain as a 20" EGA monitor would be VERY nice! ;)
