 +**<color indianred>​Pay attention to the differences,​ they are important!</​color>​**  ​Specifically,​ watch the Ys line.  This is a 5V signal from the machine that tells the monitor a computer is actively sending video. ​ Without this signal many monitors will not attempt to show anything, and my NEC monitor simply goes into standby. ​ Since many devices don't include 5V (for example, VGA) you may have to add this yourself. ​ I wired mine to a USB connector, and plug that in to any USB device to activate the monitor.  ​
  
 **NOTE** the numbers are usually visible on the connector itself. ​ If you're looking at the business end of the female connector, pin 1 is on the right. ​ On a male connector it's on the left. **NOTE** the numbers are usually visible on the connector itself. ​ If you're looking at the business end of the female connector, pin 1 is on the right. ​ On a male connector it's on the left.
