    I have come across a strange moniter port that I can't identify, its not like the other ports I have seen on older macs ie Performa. This is on a powermac 6100/60.
    Plz help me, I want to connect it but I don't know what cable to use.

    EveryMac lists it as an HDI-45 video connection.

    A quick google search turns up several HDI-45 cables and converters.

    It was a special port only used on certain Performa models, kind of a predecessor to ADC, as it carried video and ADB in the same cable. Some monitors made around that time would have it (Apple only) or you can get a convertor to the old-style Mac video cable (15-pin) at your local Mac dealer (not the Apple stores, a private dealer might have it) or online, not sure where.
