This thread (http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=44692) seems to indicate the 2007FP CAN do 15hkz on the VGA / RGB input... so maybe you're all good. Anyone here want to test?

Seems to indicate that the Rainbow is a 15khz sync signal, more akin to normal interlaced video- which I called out in my other post as being the one type of signal that doesn't always work for these displays.
You may find success using a GBS-8220 scan-doubler, (ebay, c. $28 USD), perhaps with a sync-strainer circuit to feed the SoG signal to the Scan Doubler as composite sync, if it doesn't work directly with the 2007FP.
Curious to hear what you figure out.

He had another one at that price (the last one apparently), so I have bagged
that one. I tried my Viewsonic, which does SoG, on my Rainbow at the weekend,
but that didn't work, perhaps this will. Even if it doesn't it will still be a
good second monitor for my everyday PC.
