Monitor and the Dragon 64

Post by ZahrlAn » Tue Jan 08, 2019 1:28 pm

Hello.

I just want to ask what Monitors can i connect to the Dragon?
I have some Commodore 1084S with DB9 and DIN connectors.

How do the Dragon connect the Monitor. I'ts quite hard to get some informations about that.

regards
Andreas

Hello Andreas and welcome to the forum.

The Dragon has a composite video monitor socket - an ASCII representation of the pinouts can be seen at the Dragon Information Files site of Graham E. Kinns - so in theory any CRT monitor which can accept a composite signal should work. Whether-or-not any of your monitors can accept a composite signal is another question, I have found a thread on the AtariAge Forums that may be of use as it is all about Commodore 1084 monitors and composite input.
