I have a DEC VR150 that is nearly functional; shows full screen but the
H/V are not in any sync at all. Would love to use it with a VaxStation
Opened it up and found it quite a complicated monitor, not like a simple
PC monochrome monitor.
Purchased a microfiche manual off ebay, but haven't been able to view it
Eager to hear how you do with your larger monitor.
