I just tested a samsung syncmaster 920n using a sun 13w3-vga converter and it worked fine from an indigo2.

RE: modern sync on green monitors that can be reccomended
I used my old Samsung 740BF with Octane. The only problem I have with it was shifted image (around 2 cm to the left if I remember correctly). Now I'm using Samsung S24C650 with SGI without any problems (Indy, O2, Octane, Fuel).

RE: modern sync on green monitors that can be reccomended
Hello everybody!

I am new here! I love Silicon Graphics machines. There are just so nice.
I have a Tezro, an Onyx2 and an Octane2.
I bought recently a Samsung 2443bw for my Tezro, because I have read that it supports SOG and is 1920x1200.
It works, well kind of. I cannot make it show the entire image Tezro is sending. It is off-screen by a huge margin.
I have tried reseting the monitor, setting manually the x/y offset but I failed. I use 50Hz but also at 60Hz there exists the same problem.
With a big SGI CRT monitor at 1920x1200 I have no problems, but at 50Hz it is flickering too much for me.

Perhaps my Samsung is defect (although it is working OK with DVI-D input) or not fully compatible with the Tezro.
I am interested in buying a used Dell 2412m. Do you know if it will work correctly with the Tezro at 1920x1200?
I hope the image is not off-screen with the Dell.
Thank you very much in advance!

RE: modern sync on green monitors that can be reccomended
I use a Dell U2412m with an Octane/VPro @ 1900x1200 with no issues. So the prospects are good for a Tezzie working with 1900x1200 Dell 24" monitors.

Also, you might be able to fix your issue with a custom VFO file. The best option is to plug the monitor into a PC, capture the EDID data and make a monitor-specific VFO. This old neko post has a lot of good info: https://web.archive.org/web/201603190712...t=16725716

There also may be a precompiled custom vpro VFO that works better in this zip (warning: direct download link) hosted by larbob: http://mirror.larbob.org/misc/SGI_O2_VPr...arious.zip

Thank you for the fast response!
Unfortunately, I am not that tech savvy in order to use a custom VFO file.
Moreover, the Dell is a much better monitor overall, so I will go to that direction.
Have a nice day!

I want to connect a modern non-CRT monitor to an SGI system and use CrystalEyes shutterglasses with it. Is it possible at all? If it is, what model of monitor would you suggest?
