    I need the 9pin video pinout (or any information) of an 8bit 512kb Metheus 8842 086-05219-03 video card from an IBM XT I have been trying to get running.

    I have a hi-res Mitsubishi BNC monitor that should work with the card if I can build a proper cable.

    The card is rating at 1024x768 x 42hz which matches my old monitor, but all I get is garbage on the screen as the cable I have is not properly setup for this card. I know the XT works properly (with a different video card).

    This card is an original from 1987 and is very unique and I would like to get this old autocad unit running in original condition (minus the original monitor)

    The card has a Metheus 022-04900-00 M8650304 GPU and a matched 022-04899 chip onboard. the only other number on the card is 080-05220-05

    Anyone have any idea what this unit is?

    Thanx
    Ryan

    Thanx but I've tried both sites, the Metheus support site doesn't go back far enough and the metheus generally did not come as a standard option on the IBM XT )it was a special application card sold by a 3rd party( I'm afraid I will have to do it the hard way, try it pin by pin until I get horiz and verticle sync to make a stable screen then go pin by pin to make it get the proper colors on screen.

    If anyone else can help give a go, I'm worried I might blow something out (ie ground to sync is bad)

    Cheers

    Here are common pin outs for 15 and 9 pin as well as many other pin outs
    I do not think that Metheus would have a proprietary pin out, since they have stayed in business this long? http://www.acl.co.uk/pinouts.htm
