I found this VGA to DVI scaler on Ebay:

It can accept RGB to VGA connections, and will convert to DVI!  Think this will allow my Nextstation Color Turbo to connect to any Modern DVI LCD?

I called the mfg, and it supports RGB to VGA sync on green, so that's good news!  I am just wondering if the 1120x832 resolution will work.....

ask them if it'll handle the resolution at 72hz :P I might. be worth a shot to play with.

Now if they can make one that supports LVDS output there's a few 1600SW owners who might want one :D
2 x NeXTStation Colour Turbo + 1 Defunct monitor = sad panda

P.S.  Just acquired this VGA to DVI converter, it does NOT work with NeXT color or mono systems, I am assuming it doesn't support the custom resolution and/or 72hz refresh, oh well...

It'd be interesting to know what's inside that converter... the biggest issue I have with LCDs is the resolution.
