Using the AppleColor display for Raspberry Pi output [message #275650] Sat, 13 December 2014 22:31 Go to previous message

I have the AppleColor Composite Monitor IIe, Model number A2M6021X which
sits atop my //e platinum and works fairly well. Colours are still
vibrant enough and I'm happy with it on the whole.

Now, I'm located in New Zealand and I'm aware that NZ uses a variant of
PAL to display on their TV sets, but I'm sure that this monitor is just a
'standard' US NTSC monitor. This said, when I plug it into the Raspberry
Pi eveything is in mono. I thought it must just be a setting in
/boot/config.txt so I ensured that the obvious settings like sdtv_mode=0
and sdtv_colourburst=0 are forced. No dice.

I know it's possible to get this (or at least a variant of this) monitor
to display the Raspberry Pi composite output in colour because I watched
David Schmenk do it in his Apple2Pi demo video.

Does anyone know the secret of getting these monitors in colour when
hooking up to a Raspberry Pi or other composite source?

Thanks!
