What is a "composite sync monitor"?

  1. Hi

    I have this box I can tick in Catalyst Control Center that say "Composite Sync":
    "Check this ONLY if you are using an older composite sync monitor..".

    What is that? I know my monitor is a CRT, but composite sync :confused:

    Thankful for any replies given.

    It's just a method old monitors used for sync. Another one is sync-on-green. Years back, I had a 19" workstation monitor that used sync-on-green and five separate BNC video cables along with a special $450 graphics card. I think the card had a whopping 16mb of memory. That setup was still cheaper than a decent multi-sync 19" monitor back then.
