  1. Is there a way to feed composite video in an old B/W pc monitor?
    This for use on a security system (the person asking has 4 of those
    very neat small monitors used on checkout systems.)

  2. Hi!

    There exist ready made boxes to do this...one that I've had experience with
    is the so-called PS/2 TV, made by Rexon-Techmar under that name and also
    their own brand, which I don't recall. If you can find one used it might be
    a nice solution to the problem at a reasonable cost, but it requires at
    least the +5V from the keyboard plug to get it to turn on.

    I used mine with an IBM 8504 VGA monochrome display and that monitor really
    made a nice B&W TV set.

    There are other more modern solutions but they are not cheap.

    Probably not, most of the early PC monochrome monitors used a digital
    input, not analogue video.

    Chances are these are mono VGA monitors, it can be done, but it's certainly
    cheaper to find some mono composite monitors.
