Commodore 64 triple monitor setup

My second Benq BL702A monitor has arrived. The first one is connected to my Amiga 500. At first through RGB, which was excellent, but since a short while through VGA of the Indivision ECS V2, which is still not optimal due to missing overscan.

Whilst playing around with the optimal setting for my new Turbo Chameleon V2, I’ve connected the old Commodore 1701 to the audio/video output of the Commodore 64, a Samsung SyncMaster 711MP LCD TV to the s-video ouput of the C64 Reloaded MK1 and now the Benq BL702A to the VGA output of the Turbo Chameleon V2. This gives me a nice comparison of the differences in video ouput.

The first thing that I noticed that the colors on the Benq BL702A were off with both the other displays. The Boulderdash looks more purple then blue. I don’t know if this has something to do with monitor itself, or with the Chameleon. I fiddled around with most of the settings of the Chameleon and of the monitor and I must say I’m quite happy by how it looks. I think I’ll retire the 1701 back to storage once again.
