A500 to C= monitor without modulator

Postby Danny D » Fri Jul 17, 2015 2:00 pm

Question for the Amiga techies.

I purchased an A500 and a Commodore 1802 monitor.Next week I'll have a chance to unbox and setup.

The monitor inputs are like so http://www.mudforge.com/sales/images/full/C1802_08.jpg
I do NOT have a modulator.

Am I correct in saying that the A500 only outputs monochrome without a modulator? Do I need a modulator or is there some other cable I can get ? Perhaps the A500 DB23 male, analog RGB port holds the solution?

the modulator is for tv-use. With a monitor you should be good without.

Thanks for the reply.

and this is the reply

"no you cant use rgb on this natively at the rear sorry.

all 500 including the plus has composite in black and white i think.

youll lost likely be looking for a 520 to access the colour composite signal."
