iirc it has to accept sync-on-green.
i ran for many years off sbus cg3s and cg6s with a sony 15sxII at
1152x900x66; stable and crisp and within its 1280x1024x60 limit. more
recently i've also used an hp-branded tube which may well have been a
rebranded sony. i'm currently using a sony e200 on a creator fb.
