I have an old Acorn computer which I am sure works fine but the monitor gave up years ago. It has a 9 pin analogue RGB port. Any suggestions on getting a monitor that will work with it?

  • Just a FYI. look at acorn.chriswhy.co.uk for some info on your old computer a couple of links and this link acorn.chriswhy.co.uk/docs/Acorn/AN/249.pdf for info on monitors.

  • An Amiga monitor should work fine with it, IIRC, but finding one of those would be nearly as difficult.

  • Thank you for your suggestions. I'll have a look and see what I can find - otherwise I will just put it on eBay and see if there are any takers! Nov 16, 2012 at 8:15

It's complicated and depends on the model. You might be unlucky with the 420. This article explains: http://www.riscos.org/legacy/monitors.html

  • I have it on good authority you can rewire a SCART connector to use it with a TV. Details are here: link Nov 16, 2012 at 8:54
