DIP switch settings for Mac to VGA adapter

Recommended Posts

I'll assume I008com's mac in question is the 7300 in their signature, yes?

Looks like the resolution should go up that high even with only 2 MB of VRAM (albeit at 256 colors...).

Another option, which might be a long shot, would be a Radius Pivot cable (at least that's what mine was hand-labeled as...), which is a standard DB-15 male to HD-15 male and no PCB trickery in between:

It's worked, plug-n-play, on every Power Mac I have (4400, PowerWave*, PMG3MT) connected to my Sony TFT display. The display in question might be the bigger X-factor in this case, however. From either control strip or the monitors control panel, you should have access to every resolution/refresh combo the monitor can handle (and in some cases more than it can handle...) Can't attest to any CRT performance, sadly.

*the PowerWave requires a PCI video card. The from-factory option (I think) was a Mach64.
