    prewarning.... i probably should mention that this is from the wrong manual but the two monitors look identical.
    The manual is for a xc-3725c and I have the 3730c.

    Just so you can know where I'm coming from and what I'm trying to acomplish.
    Got a mitubishi xc-3730c monitor that has an rgb connector. (details at bottom)
    Want to use it to hook up with my xbox 360 vga adapter. And my windows pc if possible; which I think it can.(details at bottom)
    So any of you who might have any expertise in this field might be able to give me a hand figuring out what I can and cannot do with this thing.

    None of this gibberish means anything worth while to me

    Oh and here's what it says in the manual...
    RGB 2 input connector.
    RGB 2 is for a personal computer use, especially RGB 2 can be compatible with IBM, PS/2, XGA, and MAC II by using MODE 2.
    Two types of SYNC signals can be input to RGB 2. In case of 0.3V - SYNC level, connect with pin 4 and 5. In case of TTL level connect with pin 12 and 13.

    Pinout for the RGB input is this one as stated by the manual for the xc-3725c


    1 Red 0.7 Vp-p 75Ω 9 GND-(Red)
    2 Green 0.7 Vp-p 75Ω 10 GND-(Green)
    3 Blue 0.7 Vp-p 75Ω 11 GND-(Blue)
    4 H/COMP-SYNC 0.3 Vp-p j75Ω 12 H-COMP-SYNC TTL
    5 V-SYNC 0.3 Vp-p 75Ω 13 V-SYNC TTL
    6 "RESERVE" N.C. 14 "RESERVE" N.C.
    7 "RESERVE" N.C. 15 "RESERVE" N.C.
    8 "RESERVE" N.C.

    edit| apparently this is the pinout for standard VGA/xvga
    Pin 1 - Red
    Pin 2 - Green
    Pin 3 - Blue
    Pin 4 - ID Bit
    Pin 5 - N/C
    Pin 6 - Red Return
    Pin 7 - Green Return
    Pin 8 - Blue Return
    Pin 9 - No Pin
    Pin 10 - Ground
    Pin 11 - ID Bit
    Pin 12 - ID Bit
    Pin 13 - Horizontal Sync
    Pin 14 - Vertical Sync
    Pin 15 - N/C

    Anyone see any potential problems/tips before I start soldering wires; or knows where I can get an adapter?
    Also anyone have any tips on soldering solder type connectors as I have no experience with them.

    Now I know I can go to fry's and get all the solder type connectors I need.... And I hope it shouldnt' be too hard to do with my dinky 9.99 solder kit from radio shack if I have too.... But I tried using these little coated copper wires but they don't seem to do the trick.... don't seem to want to stay stuck to whatever i solder it to.
    Using some solder with the flux in it.

    Additional problem is I'm having trouble controlling the unit as there are no controller interfaces currently installed.
    I'm hoping someone might be able to help me figure this thing out from the manual to get it working.
