2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

How to make a CoCo3 to CGA/EGA adapter

List of materials:
1) an old PC serial cable (the one that goes from
the motherboard to the back of the case DB9M)
2) a DB9F socket to replace the DB9M (I used an
EGA card since my CoCo is repacked)

Cut the DB9M connector off of the serial cable and
solder the wires to the DB9F using the following
pinout. Note that both pins 1 and 2 of the CoCo
end go to pin 1 of the DB9F. CoCo Pin 7 should only
be connected to a monitors audio input (if present)
or you may run it to an external amplifier.
