Hi,

I'm looking for a Monitor lead for a 1084 the type that connects to the 23pin RGB output on the Miggy and connects to the round 8 pin socket on the Monitor. The cable I have (which I though was the right one grr) has 6 pins.

Happy to trade the above mentioned cable or pay cash/paypal/beer/4 Guinea Pigs of questionable quality.

Cheers,

Steve.

I dont understand??:huh: Why do not you do the round Din 6 pin? This is for analogue RGB!! The Din 8pin is for digital TTL RGB with intensity input!
I am confused about your problem with the exact cable.:blink:

Yeah, use the analog like you're supposed to.

I had one of those old original 1084S models, great picture for standard Amiga resolutions and you could connect a composite signal from a video recorder/tuner at the same time (push button on the front for CVBS/RGB input selection). It was my television as well as my monitor. :)

I dont have a 6 pin socket on my Monitor only the 8 pin one.

I can use the RGB scart but I dont want to pay another £15 for a scart lead. hence hoping somone has a spare cable they'd sell me for a few quid.

I'm using composite out now, the pic is ok, but RGB is better.

Steve.

@Steve

I'm pretty sure that if you want to use Analogue RGB (Amiga) you have to go in through the Scart, the socket you mention should be TTL RGBI only.

TC :)

edit - Nope- I got it wrong.... you use the same 9-pin port for both Analogue RGB & TTL RGBI, just use the switch to select the mode.



9-pin D -- RGB Analog 0.7V P-P, 75 ohm
RGBI Digital TTL levels, positive or negative sync.

PIN ASSIGNMENT

Pin No. TTL RGB............. Analog RGB
1 ........Ground ..............Ground
2 ........Ground ..............Ground
3 ........Red ...................Red
4 ........Green ................Green
5 ........Blue ..................Blue
6 ........Intensity............ Not used
7........ Not used ............Composite Sync.
8........ H.Sync. .............H.Sync.
9 ........V.Sync. .............V.Sync.

:)Sorry not have met a 1084 with only 8 pin Din until know. This is something new to me.

Oh. Lame. I thought I just had the wrong cable.

May as well close this then.

Maybe TC is on about the 1084S, or maybe not.....:LOL:

Do I really have to go into my loft and unpack my 1084S to resolve this?

That looks like a pin-out for a 9-pin D socket, which is not what you want...

I have a 23-pin to SCART lead or two around here somewhere - I've never managed to get any worthwhile picture using one though. It might be my TV doesn't like the signal, I don't know. You can have one for P+P only if you want, no guarantees. :)

Ed: @Merlin, which model of 1084(S). There are several. Certainly there were some models with SCART socket.

I Maybe referring to the 1084S, maybe not..:shhh:

The point is if psodas knows this monitor well then please share the information so we can help steve out..

I've never actually owned a 1084 / or 1084S, just had a look at the schematics.

TC :)

Sorrys its 8 pins and round but on the back of the 1084 its labled TTL RGB so I guess this is not what I need. (my 1084 defo does not have a 6 pin input)

I'll just keep an eye out for a cheap scart, I can live with the slight shadow on the composite for now...

Ed: @Merlin, which model of 1084(S). There are several. Certainly there were some models with SCART socket.

I remember having a CM8833 which had a TTL DIN socket & a separate scart Socket for the Anaogue RGB....Hence my earlier response regarding scart leads...

This is the problem I think regarding these monitors in that they were re-badged or differed from one version to another with minor model name changes...

So---- Is the CM8833 the same as the 1084 ---- & the 1084S the one with the switchable 9pin-din as I listed earlier :LOL:
