Default A1200 Video adapter for 1942 monitor

So I just picked up an A1200 with a 1942 monitor and I realized he forgot to bring the Amiga video adapter so now I can't even play with my new Miggy! Arrrg. :boohoo:

Do you guys know of any place here in the US I can drive to go pick up that adapter. Or is it one of those hard to find, obscure Amiga deals.

I need the 15 pin to 23 pin adapter. :boohoo:

I was thinking something more general. Like: go to radio shack or something. I'm in Northern California if that helps.

Just checked Radio Shack website, they don't have 23-pin D-plugs. They are pretty difficult to get these days.

A couple of years ago, it was quite easy to get these :-(

Were 23-pin D-plugs/sockets ever used by anything other than the Amiga?

@Prismra: have you got an old A520 modulator you could cannibalise?!

:boohoo:

...called Fry's Electronics (worst store ever!) and they are OUT! Damn!

and no, I don't have anything I can take apart to build one. The dude said he would look around his house to find the adapter for me so I guess I have to wait until next week.

I'm so pissed!

Oh well, I guess I'll go play the 360...
