I am not 100% sure but from what I have read on this thread (not specified in the Ad) you need an Atari DIN13 male to a DB15 Female?KLund1 wrote:Good thread!
If I'm reading this right (doubtful) This SuperColor HD unit only works from the ST composite output, not the Monitor output. Though it could if there was an Atari 15pin male to 9 pin male connector with the right pinouts?
Shredder11 wrote:I'm using the ST monitor output from the 13-pin DIN socket. I am also using a monitor switching box from the 13-pin DIN socket that sends two cables; a VGA mono and a SCART. The VGA mono goes straight into the Supera Color HD VGA input. The SCART goes into a small adapter with a S-Video lead connected and that goes into the Supera's front S-Video input socket via the supplied adapter, which converts the 4-pin DIN to a 9-pin DIN. If this is still unclear I will post another photo with everything in shot.
So I have got all the resolutions working from one monitor and looking great. I have not posted a photo of the Hi-Res mono mode yet but it looks fine on my monitors to me.

only one thing not clear: the vga cable must leave on left of pictures goes under the table on comme back on rear of table to DB15 is that right
Looks like no audio connected ? although looks like your switchbox has audio output
What is the gender of DB15 connector they provide on "vga" cable? (where you plug your black DB15)
Did you try color on the VGA (not the s-video). Just change the DIN13 from one output to the other. And by the way did you try mono on s-video? (in other can we use what we want or is there a prefered entry for color and mono?)
EDIT: Did not see but looks like you have a DB15 adapter between the 2 connectors and looks like a F-F ?
I do not see any cable from the SCART adapter and as far as I know S-Video does not carry sound? may be not plugged during the photo?Shredder11 wrote:Wrong. Audio comes via the SCART cable from the STs monitor output. This ends up going into the Supera and then output via the 3.5mm audio output on the front. However I normally use my STEs stereo phono outputs for better quality.
I though that was the all purpose of this box?As far as I know colour output is not possible via VGA methods.

2. Any idea where I can get a monitor switch box?
I have an old box like the one on page 5 that can switch between colour and mono but the signal is really shaky. So I'd rather use my dedicated (and new!) SCART and VGA cables in a switch box.

Mine is not flickery at all and I am using a UK PSU with 1.2A output that I bought from CPC.co.uk
Shredder11 wrote:I only bought the PSU because the one supplied was a foreign type with two prongs. At this point I had no idea that the PSU may affect picture quality etc, but when someone in the thread stated they had flicker problems and asked what PSU I used, I then pointed them in the direction of where I got mine. I'm also a bit picky about PSUs now anyway as most manufacturers cut corners with those, later leading to overheating and eventual failure with many power hungry items.
