>75 ohm bnc terminator is for video, be sure its not a 50 ohm data terminator.
>To tell ya the truth I've never seen the failure of a Sony auto terminator on one of their monitors.

>The one 8041Q monitor we own has a bad "A" output self terminator, and we have to leave a 75 ohm terminator on the output or else we get that lovely washed out look, but, our 8044s and 8045s have never had an auto termination problem.
>Needless to say we leave the 8041 in the office for shooting things like stills, and running camera tests.

>Dan buy the terminator ....I'll buy you the Beer.

>I've never seen one at Radio Shack, but in a pinch what I've done there is buy a BNC connector, a 100 ohm resistor, a 250 ohm resistor ( 1/4 Watt) & solder them in parallel and connect to the BNC plug
>I bought some the other day at an electronics/electrical supply store.
They were only a couple of bucks. Cheap insurance against a failed auto-terminator.
