Just what the title says. I can find these online for like $30, which is a little overpriced for something that's obsolete and costs about $1.50 to ship USPS.

I guess I can trade if there's something you need...I have an Apple-branded DVI/VGA dongle and an IR Apple remote (the old white one, not the newer one with the extra button) I have no use for since my Mini died.

All I want is to be able to use the ADC header on my G4's Radeon 9000 with a normal monitor.

ADB (Apple Desktop Bus) has limited bandwidth, and was usually used for keyboards and mice. I've never heard it used for a display interface.



Perhaps you mean an ADC (Apple Display Connector) to DVI adapter.

Dammit.

I've been schooled.

Okay, so ADC.

Changed the thread title, since reader had too much to do.

I might have a couple of these at work. I'll look tomorrow.

You're looking for the opposite.

The DVI to ADC adapter is $100 - it has to include the power supply to the display.

How about $10 shipped? At the moment I can't get my G4 to display VGA on my 1080p tv remotely well (the picture is all offset and wonky), so I'm not sure I'm going to end up leaving the thing hooked up to my TV at all...
