dual monitors on PCjr

Postby creekmore34 » Tue Jan 05, 2021 9:46 pm

Greetings All,

I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck splitting the A/V signal from the PCjr monitor cable and sending it to two different monitors.

I would like to do this, and I think it would be fairly easy if I go the db9 y-cable route and separate out the audio, but I'd prefer not to cut the cable of my PCjr monitor. Has anyone ever fabricated a connector that will interface with the monitor's berg connector?

Cheers,
Ryan

I would think that using the adapter cable that plugs into the PCjr and a standard RGBI monitor would be the way to go. Then you can use readily available DE-9 connectors to create the Y-cable.
