The adapter connects to the monitor connector on the
bottom of a CoCo-3 as opposed to the RCA video connector
in the back. The monitor connector is for monitors such
as the CM-8
Basically the adapter takes the signal from the CoCo and
converts it to a VGA signal so it can be used on most VGA
monitors. I assume a flat panel will work.
There has been talk on this list about it, so I assumed
most poeple knew of it. I hope that's the case and I
didn't let anything out of the bag. :/
