I've surfed LEM, there is nothing I can see over there which helps.

It is a nubus card, pulled from a IIcx.
It has a coaxial connector.... Ethernet.
It has a Dsub-15 connector..... Graphics.
It says 'Colorlink' in the copper tracks of the component side of the PC Board, it says it is part number '030-01779-00' and adds an IEEE number.

The term Colorlink needs more data - DC/t or some such, but there is nothing more I can add aside from a barcode number (0040E 0007F3).

You people id'd my thunder, can this card stumble you all?

Thanks for the help, keep on Mac-ing.

Wohoo! NICE find! Sounds like my Futura II LX (?) dunno, plunk it into a working NuBus system, run TattleTech, and it should tell you exactly what it is from the DeclROM in the TT NuBus/PDS report and probably give you the rough ethernet info too.

Mine is about 7" and the 10baseT is on a skinny daughtercard plugged into the top half of the double row socket for the DSP Daughtercard.

Drivers should be on gamba, IIRC.

Oh jt, you and your NuBus! Is there any card that you don't have in a box somewhere?

TattleTech.... very good answer! Will the trialware version work, or do I need a registered version? I have some version of TattleTech on some older MacAddict CDs, somewhere around here......

Nope all on one card.

Thanks eight-ball. (I will reply with TT data within a few days).

Trial version works fine, I've been running it lately because I didn't feel like looking for either of my TechTool revs!

Just google and download the current version.

Did you look at the list of cards over on LEM yet?

Call me jt or trash, I just stuck that callsign crap on there cuz I'd adopted the eight-ball emoticon to go with my sig for some reason.

Well, I've got an E-Machines ColorLink SX-T. Hold on while I grab it to read the numbers. Doesn't look like it's the same as yours. Mine has "PCB P/N 029-1464-01", and a sticker with 'ASSY. 0008780-0001 REV.A1". E-Machines chip "017-01306-11 / USA / 9247KVB30", Bt RAMDAC "Bt473KPJ80 / RAMDAC / 6719239".

Mine works great, I used to have a matching E-Machines 17" monitor that would do 1024x768 at millions of colors with that card in a IIci. Plus it has 10Base-T Ethernet, which worked great. (Unfortunately, the monitor suffered a 6 foot fall off a shelf, and died... 3 months later. That was one well-built monitor.)

I'm teasing - been there done that!

Anyhow, I guess I'll ultimately need to know more about which monitors and which systems will work with the card.

whatever . . . I'm getting better . . . really, I am! I didn't forget everything in your first post until my FOURTH!

Dunno, but if you or anybody else is looking for E-Machines Video Card info . . .

*walks over to plastic container wherein lies fabled horde of almost unknown NuBus schwag, pulls out yet another E-Machines oddity . . . *

. . . runs across any info on a full length NuBus card: 8 Plane Video Controller 029-00496-01 1988 E-Machines, Inc. with a freakin' HD-15 connector on the backplane and a AMD AM81C458-80GC (PGA) Video CMOS Colour palette (1976 version was the AM81C458-110GC) . . . lemme know!
