Atari ST flat monitor.


Forum O. G.
I have developed an urge to use a modern flat VGA monitor on my old Atari 1040 STF. I have 'researched' it a bit and have seen all sorts of stuff from complex electronic jiggery-pokery right down to a simple 13 pin DIN to VGA plug conversion cable, which some people seem to be saying will actually work - does that seem reasonable? Atari stuff always seemed a bit 'dedicated' back in the old days.

And, before you ask, it is an STF, not an STFM, so I don't have a modulator output to simply fire a telly with.

I might, on rare occasions, want to use the low-res colour output, but it would be the higher resolution monochrome display that was wanted 99% of the time.
