Help Octane with lcd/tft monitors

Unread postby enginesol » Mon Sep 25, 2017 9:43 am

I have an Octane and an Octane 2.
Do you know any cheap and good LCD monitor works well for an Octane or Octane 2? (in Octane I have the EMXI and in Octane 2 I have an Odyssey V8).
Thank you very much!
:Octane: R12000A 300MHz EMXI 1.3GB RAM
:Octane2: R12000A 400MHz V8 2GB RAM

Here's a list of monitors known to work with the Octane from the Octane Hardware Aggregator:

- Monitors
Note: A properly wired 13w3 to HD15 adapter or cable is required. Most generic 13w3 to HD15 adapters are wired to the Sun version of 13w3 which may cause display issues if used with an Octane. If the advertisements says an adapter "works with Sun, IBM and SGI", it probably doesn't without modification. SGI made a 13w3 to HD15 cable for the Octane, the part number is 018-0881-002.
1. Acer P243W 24" LCD 1920x1080 (13w3>HD15 with proper cable or adapter)
2. BenQ G2110W & G2110WA (Sub-D VGA-only) --tested with V12 and Schleusel's 1680x1050 vfo. Works fine.
3. Compaq P1220 (Octane/ESI/ESI+TRAM)
4. Dell P991 19" CRT (works with 13w3 adapter with pins pulled)

9. Dell 2405FPW, 1920x1200_60 (13w3>HD15 connection)
10. Dell 2407WFP 24" LCD 1920x1200_60 V8 or V12 graphics (13w3>HD15 connection)
11. Dell 2407WFP 24" LCD 1920x1200_60 V12 graphics w/DCD (DVI connection)

20. LG L1942T, 4:3 format, 13W3 to HD15 VGA.
21. LG L222WS plugged by vga with an adaptator. It works fine in 1680x1050 with a MGRAS video card (on IRIX only for the moment)
22. LG L225WS 22"
23. LG Flatron E2242T, 21.5", 4:3 and 16:9 format, 13W3 to HD15 VGA.

The PlayStation 2 - SOG Monitor DataBase is another resource for Sync-on-Green compliant montors that might work with the Octane.
36. Teorder VGA to HDMI (B01MSTDUCH) - 1280x1024 @ 60Hz, requires proper 13w3 to VGA adapter, but every HDMI panel I have tried has worked.
