You can get the service manual from elektrotanya, and believe me you
need it!

The Einstein can output either RGB (analogue) + sync or 'Component
video' (luminance and 2 colour difference signals). There are links on the
PCB to select which.

I've never seen the official Tatung monitor for it. I assume it's based on
a common TV chassis design. (The Einstein PSU is very similar to some
1980s Decca/Tatung TV power supply circuits).
