When I tried my monitors with them, one would work in any mode, but the
other would only work when I broke off the ten little pins on my adapter.
The adapter was a Sun adapter, and the three coax connectors are the same
between the Sun and SGI 13W3, but the ten little pins carry different
signals and the ones the SGI put out confused the monitor.
