JAMMA board video hookup

OK, so it's sort-of computery. I snagged a JAMMA arcade board from a
recycling pile a couple of days ago (this is an m68k-based early 90's
board). Supposedly it's faulty, but I don't know the nature of the fault -
maybe it's just RAM or a reset problem or something, so I figured I'd put a
little bit of time into it.
Anyway, I'm having a hard time finding details about the video output - I
know it's negative composite sync (I got the manual, which says that much),
and I *think* it's TTL levels (right?), but I'm not sure about frequencies.
Then there's the RGB outputs - analog, but I'm not seeing anything that
tells me peak voltages.
I suppose the question is, what's the easiest display to try and hook this
up to? I've monitors with an assortment of inputs (VGA, EGA, CGA, MDA,
mono-composite), and I think there's a CRT TV kicking around that has a
composite input too (and maybe S-video, not sure). It doesn't bother me if
the quality's not great; I'm just interested in whatever's quickest to
interface to at this stage, just to see if I can get something working.
