Though this is not really a problem with modern hardware, as just about all modern monitors will blank, possible displaying an out of sync or out of range message instead of self-destructing. I would be very surprised if a TV being used as a monitor would suffer from this. (Besides, LCD TVs do not have flyback(sp) transformers...) Then again, I can remember interesting things happening when connecting CGA monitors to monochrome cards. (Or was it the other way around?) Why did they use DB15 connectors for both, with pinouts that let you do this? Then again, I also remember using a 16 line x 32 character terminal using a TV as the display. And now we are back to using TVs as display devices... :-) Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
