That 2408 of mine, when it came via freight, had a flyer inside it telling me that they'd included a new interface, over and above the specs, but I forget if it was the HDMI or DisplayPort. I'd never used either before. Really tiny and tight interfaces, both, and probably requiring a protocol like ddc2. There's actually 8 different switchable interfaces (well, seven really, it's got 2 different DVI's.) You can bring in broadcast video by either RCA jack, SVideo, or the component video. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (FreeBSD) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iEYEARECAAYFAkiQqNQACgkQz62J6PPcoOkVgwCeN2of6fc8KX3gK8hBag+9RrLI wIgAniKaNVoNzZAw9Z1j4N2fjUJXEi7z =QOfG -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
