So I've got this shiney new 4000/60. It came with a VR315 that works
well. The obvious shortcoming, however, is that it's monochrome. The
4000/60 comes with a graphics board and cable that outputs RGB. I tried
hooking it up to my VR290-DA that I had hooked up to my QDSS, but I
don't get any image at all. Now I know that the 4000/60's graphics head
isn't supported under NetBSD (yet), but my question is this: Should it
work with the VR290, or is there a switch I can throw somewhere to make
it sync properly?

What are the freq's of a VR315, anyway? I know the VR290 is 54K/60,
1024/768 (um.. right?) - what is the VR315, and what is the 4000/60
capable of driving? Or are there multiple video options for the 4000/60?
