Commodore VIC-20 Audio/Video

5 pin DIN 180 (DIN 41524) female at the computer.

Notice that the video output is on two pins. They are the same (wired together inside the computer) on some versions, and output a slightly different signal level in others. Use pin 4 for interfacing a video monitor such as the 1702 and pin 2 for the shield (ground).

Note: The prewired CBM cable should be the two wire type. A three wire cable used for Y/C video (C64 or C128) will not work.

Note: Be careful of the +6 volt line! It's there to source power to the -external- RF modulator used with the VIC20.
