Dave Peltier <peltierd@lawrence.edu> wrote to tell us that the AudioVision adapter cable, necessary to connect a standard Mac monitor cable to a Power Mac's HDI-45 video port, is not included with every Power Mac as we stated in TidBITS #217. Some checking has revealed that the adapter is included with the Power Macintosh 6100, since that machine has only the single HDI-45 AudioVision video port. The 7100 and 8100 models' bundled video card offers a standard DB-15 video port, so the adapter is unnecessary for most users.
