video mod query

Post by alienkidmj12 » Thu Sep 13, 2018 6:35 pm

Hi folks,

Just had my falcon mobo out of its case to do a internal scsi adapter install.

i noticed some sort of video mod on the bottom of the case,

can anyone identify what it does ?

bit worried as my monitor which works ok on my ste in 15khz, has no always been great on falcon, maybe the extra resolutions perhaps.

thanks

dave
