I have the 2B rev of the A1200 and I wondered whether i could add the VGA port that is here on a 1D4? It's the one on IDE ribbon.

Re: A1200 Mobo question.

that is not a VGA port, this is the 2nd joystick port. In later A1200 revisions, to cut down the costs they replaced the 2nd pcb that had the port with this ribbon-port...

Rev 1D1 had one single pcb:

Rev 2B had a 2nd smaller pcb that was detachable:

and the last revision just has the ribbon port... it's all about cutting down cost! The only way the A1200 can have a vga-out is via a scandoubler.
