More On 64 Video Cable

I own a 64 and recently purchased the 1702 monitor. However, to my chagrin, I soon discovered that the 8-pin cable packed with the monitor is not compatible with my 64, which has a 5-pin video output.

In COMPUTE!, November 1983, Jim Butterfield wrote an article on how to improve the 64's video quality. He said that a 5-pin cable is available to access the 1702's rear three inputs. Where can I buy this cable?

Any store with a good supply of video or electronics parts should have the cable you want. Be sure the cable has a 5-pin DIN connector on one end, and at least three RCA connectors on the other end.
