Here's the Video PinOuts for it's monitor connector, can't find the actual pinouts for the computer itself though... :)

Atari ST Video Pinout

Dunno if this one will help any... :)

All good stuff, I'm thinking about making an AtariVideo->AmigaRGB convertor as I already have an AmigaRGB->Scart connector :)

The more time passes, the more fondly I remember the old adversaries. We're slowly contracting into a dull monoculture as far as everyday computing goes. The days when there were dozens of different platforms all with their unique strengths and weaknesses seemed so vibrant in comparison.


We thought it's was bad: we were wrong!
It was nice and different!
Here in Italy I've got a quite popular retro-encyclopedia full of tests of home computers of the mid eighties!
What a variety!  :)
...was nice... but here comes nostalgia also...

that damn special DIN connector is hard to find and somewhat expensive

(but, then, perhaps not as much as 23pin dsub..)
Better sorry than worry.

Yay!!! I couldn't carry the monitor so I'm gonna have to figure out a way to get some video output... you guys will help me out :)

Maybe you could use your ipad instead of a monitor? This shouldn't be a problem for the "holygrail of computers" ;)

There was no dongle (the original Atari Monitor was there, but I'm not dragging that home), no mouse either :(

The biggest Apple zealot on A.org hasn't even got an ipad - what a hypocrite! ;)

Shame the previous owner didn't throw the S-3000 it was connected to in the bin too. :(

I never was into Akais... I'm more of a Roland/Emu person... Not that I have much real hardware left anymore.. Damn you Arturia ;)

not much into hardware yet you collect an atari from a bin? a pair of bottles to get some change would be more reasonable. though it was some solid piece, simple beatuiful design, no damn psu hanging around, just power cord, good moody color, better than any wedge amiga ive seen except maybe for 600. close run.
