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?

It will probably have to support Sync on Green.

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 Razz 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 Very Happy

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.
