I have a DEC VT220 from 1986, it has a composite output. Works great in all its max-19200Kbps monochrome glory.
The composite output plug is a BNC, and it looks like BNC-to-RCA composite jack cables are available.
There's a few YouTube videos of VT220 output from this connected a capture card.
So ... is the output close enough to black and white NTSC that I could connect it to a TV through something that converts NTSC to RF or a TV that has a composite input?
I'm sure the 132 column mode will be horribly unreadable on an analog TV, but just wondering if it's at all possible before I waste a few bucks on the cable.
I think the effective resolution of this is 640x200 but am having trouble finding this information from old documentation.
Yep, it worked great. Doesn't look half bad for the type of TV it is either, even though the image isn't centered.
