Thread: I am so happy my IBM PGC works!

  1. #1

    Default I am so happy my IBM PGC works!

    And in a Wang 386. To tell you the truth I don't think I've ran it before, successfully that is. Plugged it into a 5170 a long time ago, it only beeped. I did use my Vermont Microsystems clone in an imaging I used to have. With the 5175 that worked, before I sold it. This thing definitely puts out analog. More later. I'm busy.

    Congratz, my PGC works fine too, even with normal VGA monitor plus 15/9 pin connector reduction. Here is video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUS5yiu96i4
    So you have an 5175 monitor? You are very lucky man. Don't forget make some pictures or video

    My 5175 doesn't work. Haven't had time to crack it open. Couldn't find my tools. So I got busy. Decided it was high time to sell some s***. So I could find my tools

    Normal VGA monitors are IBM 8512 and 8513 - did you try PGC with any of these?
    AFAIR there's some difference between PGC and VGA signals (composite vs. separate sync?), so a simple mechanical 9<->15-pin adapter is not enough.
    However, many SVGA monitors are more tolerant than original VGA ones, so they work with PGC signal as well.

    I tried modern LCD monitor and also semi modern IBM VGA monitor (see my video) ok I will try 8513
