I don't see any reason why that 25 pin connection
couldn't be adapted to work with say an early
Multisync. I posted something on vintage-computer.com
a good while back, which IIRC was in effect a pinout
of that connector. In reading Nuts and Volts over the
years that particular PC (and it's weird video
connector) came up at least twice, indicating perhaps
it was popular amongst hams and such. As a possible
resource, look at some of the ham type magazines at
Barnes and Noble or wherever for hints to where you
could post help for info. I imagine it's been done.
And o yes there's also the web. Duh! I recently joined
one ham type forum looking for different info, but
can't remember the url. A google search should
pinpoint these places of discussion.
I could probably be of a bit more help. I intended to
build such an adapter myself, but never got around to
it, and I know a thing or two about it. I'll try to
post something additional if I can dig something up.
