Hmm. Turns out the monitor is some old PC thing which expects
to be connected to a Hercules type of connector. As far as I
can tell, that means a 9 pin D plug with separate pins for
intensity, video, h-sync and v-sync. I guess I can't connect
that to the VS3100 as its framebuffer only outputs a combined
video and sync signal ...

Looks like I'll have to try and find a colour, sync on green
monitor with BNC connnectors.
