I have a Sun IPX I just purchased. I have one of those 13W3 to SVGA (15
pin) adapters. The adapter works with a Sun monitor, but not with any of
the PC type monitors I have access to. I've been informed it has something
to do with Sun putting sync on its own pin and PC monitors having sync on
green. Is it possible to just short the sync and green pins to make it
work with a PC monitor, or am I dreaming?
