Apologies for the noob question.  I've picked up a 464 Plus today that was thrown in as an afterthought as part of a wider bundle with some Atari STs.  The unit is bare with no leads and I'd prefer not to start investing in cables for a system that could be beyond repair.  I already own a 464 and CTM644 monitor - are there any conversion kits so I can using the existing hardware that I own to test the 464 Plus unit?

All you need is a simple adapter cable with a 6-pin female DIN on one end and an 8-pin male DIN on the other, wired using the pinouts from https://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Connector:Monitor . It should also take the 5V power from the monitor as well, although you might need a 2.1->2.5 DC jack adapter in between. I'm using this setup with a GX4000 and it works perfectly.

Thanks pelrun.  Does anyone offer these for sale before I try not to burn my house down with the cheap soldering iron that I have?

Thanks all.  Great responses!

What about amps?
Is this monitor capable of delivering what the plus model needs?

Not an issue. The power requirements are similar and the CTM has lots of overhead.

Damn, I must connect my plus then to it.


Thanks Bryce.
