The actual cable I have is a 13w3-->vga connector, sync convertor, vga
lead and another 12w3--> vga connector. Would this work or would it need
some other kind of adaptor. I have also tried a 13w3-->3 bnc connector
with no joy. It is nice to see so many different variations of the 13w3
connector are there any more ?
