That sounds like the connector to the AV hardware. It's used by boards like the SpigotProAV.

Perhaps it is the pds slot i donno you`d see a card in it with the av stuff I would think if it was, unless someone removed it...

The 840av was one of the few macs that did not have any sort of PDS expanison
slot.


Not true - the PDS slot is a tiny black in-line connector behind the top NuBus slot. It is used on
AV cards such as the Spigot PAV. It is PDS but you can't use it for CPU functions as it's
instruction set is set up for AV functions. It is also present on the HPV cards on the x100
PowerMacs, which themselves plug into the PDS slot, too and is connected to the Spigot card
by a small ribbon cable.


It's cheers to SVP for this quote that I dug up by googling!, via google.co.uk/mac
