My measurements on my VS3100/M76 some days ago are:

They are on the video signal, like a BAS signal or the Sync-on-Green output.
(A Sync-on-green input of a DEC VR-299 works with the mono output, i tested)

Just GND i think... (ret -> returns)

Would interest me also... :-)

OK, the pinout i found is:
1 - Red out
2 - GND
... GND
8 - GND
9 - Mono (Composite) out
10 - Green out
11 - Blue out
12 - GND
... GND
15 - GND

Thst's the VS3100/M76 !!! I cannot surely tell, if it's the same on a VS2K !
But the connector seems so. Just take a multimeter and check the GND pins
against the connector shield and you know it.
