Atari XL/XE 5-Pin DIN to Commodore 1902A AV Cable
Have an Atari XL/XE computer that supports S-Video but only a Commodore 1902A and compatible monitors (or other monitors with separate RCA Chroma/Luma connectors)? This cable will do just that by allowing you to connect your Atari 800, 800XL*, 65XE, and 130XE to the Commodore 1902A Monitor. The cable includes the Chroma, Luma, and mono audio connector.
NOTE: In earlier versions of the Atari 800XL, Atari didn't include the Chroma or Luminance connections. So in versions produced before August of 1984, this cable will not work. This can also be checked with the version of Atari BASIC (This would be listed as Rev C but not all Rev C versions support S-Video). Please also note that even though the 1200XL has the 5-Pin DIN connector, it is also lacking the proper Chroma and Luminance connections. Please confirm that your 800XL is compatible beforehand otherwise composite video can still be used.
