The Knight TV's were connected through the Rubin 10-11 interface, not a DL10.

Ah, right you are: I just assumed from the name (without checking!) that it
was some kind of variant on the DN87 - which I guess it is, just a more major
one than I thought! :-)
I wonder why DEC sold MIT a KL with a DL10 for the second PDP-11 front end?
(The Console-11 was connected via a DTE.) Maybe it was so early in the
product run that the DN87S didn't exist yet?
