And if the monitor becomes unplugged (or the adapter in this case) shut the console down before replugging...the inrush can (and will) destroy the board mounted TFT displays.The second connector next to the VGA port is an MDR20. It was used for a short time prior to DVI's appearance in computers. Another Sony creation, it was short lived, carried good clean digital signal & power to the strand monitors on the higher end Strand 300 consoles. You can find MDR20 to DVI adapters online for about $15. It's also the same video output as the VGA connector.
