It sounds like you have the audio only A/V modules. This is what I have in
both of my SGI O2's. :^(
The SGI O2 is hands down one of the most impressive machines I own. Even
the one with the crappy R5kPC 180Mhz CPU and something like 160MB RAM
totally rocks. I have a second O2 with a R12k 270Mhz CPU that is really
awesome. It is a shame SGI killed the MIPS systems and IRIX. I'd love to
own something like the SGI Tezro workstation, but can't see spending any
more on the platform. I don't even remember the last time I powered one of
the systems up. :^(
Actually just thinking about this makes me want to find something to use my
R12k based O2 for.
