Paul,
	mode switch on a monitor may or may not shorten the monitor life
depending on the type of horizontal oscillator.  The cheaper mono type
when I was into that use a series of one shots to generate front porch,
scan period and back porch.  Thus if you blasted them with the wrong
horizontal frequency the resonant coil would be off frequency and smoke.

	Not sure but the multi sync stuff have no one shots and a much broader
resonant coil.  I think they phase lock onto what they receive as
Horizontal drive.  By multi sync I mean monitors that are dual purpose
vga/svga etc.

		Regards Ian.
