Actually, most multisync montiors will sync to a number of different scan
frequencies (corresponding to resolutions) but they won't sync to _any_
frequency in that range. Often, for example, capicitors are
electronically sqitched in and out in the horizontal output stage,
obviously a given capacitor is either in-circuit or not, So there's a
limited number of frequencies that stage will correctly work at.
