    Default Saw this cheap 15k RGB monitor on Ebay.. Not mine.

    I was browsing old tvs and saw this.

    Looks to me to be a composite / rgb monitor (15k). (Or not RGB, see the post by next further down the thread)


    Can't remember the name of the connector, but I used on like this in the 80's for my c128's rgb output.


    He's asking $31.66 + shipping.

    That's not a bad price. It's a digital RGB connector, according to this site.

    I know of that plug existing before digital RGB was a thing for that connector. You will want to verify that the TV supports it before buying.

    This connector was used on the Tandy 2000 high res RGB monitor as well as a host of Sony computers. They usually supported greater than 15khz, going all the way to 640*400.

    Well, learning new things every day. I'm going to go with Next's post. So maybe not a RGB monitor.

    I had one of these...

    Back in the day with my 128, so I assumed that having that connector it was rgb.

    If you end up with the monitor, I believe I have a plug for the 8-pin connection somewhere in my hellbox. It was originally part of a cable for a Japanese monitor back in the early 80s. The nameplate on the thing said "100VAC" for the line voltage, per Japanese convention, but it worked well on 120VAC.

    This monitor is a Sony broadcast video monitor. It isn't a television set, it doesn't appear to have a tuner. The connector is to connect a VTR/VCR up to it. Videotek is a company from Pottstown PA that made commercial video broadcast/surveillance equipment not computer equipment. It has composite video/audio In & loopthrough connectors.

    HTH,

    The top does look like it has a spot for an antenna.

    It's funny if you look at the back it shows Sony KV-1365 as the model number above the Videotek sticker... but the front controls and the back panel don't match the manual I found.

    The model may refer to the chassis and not the body.
    Thank like how the Commodore 1702 does not share the same controls or chassis but shares a nearly identical enclosure to the JVC television set it was based from (and still has the indent for the removable antenna) or how one model of the video display for the TRS-80 Model I was by all means an RCA television with the RF stage removed.
