Thankyou for the response...
I am still a little unlcear, however. Do you mean that I can
plug some non-dec kind of mouse into the port that the dec mouse
normally uses? Such that it will pass the self-test of the
monitor upon power-on? Are you saying perhaps that the mouse
port is really for example, an rs232c port?
