[rescue] NeXT & Sun Monitor

The NeXT doesn't use sense signals at all. Power is fed to a NeXT
monochrome monitor only. On a slab, the power leads stop at the sound
box. You have to have the sound box on a color slab to connect kb and
mouse. At the monitor, only the three coaxial cpins in a 13W3 are
used. One of my 21" NeXT-Hitachi mointors has the 3 bnc only connection
and uses the NeXT BNC-13W3 adapter. I've metered it out and none of the
other pins in the adapter except the coaxial ones are connected to
anything. Does the Sun 20e20 support sync-on-green that the NeXT needs?
