I'm new to the Apple II retro scene (had a II+ in the 80s). I just got a IIe Platinum at VCF MW this weekend and have started the process of building up the system. I'm currently using a little 12" LCD with composite for the monitor, but the video sync is not great. I usually have to start the IIe, then turn the TV on and off a couple times to get it to "catch" the video and show up properly. The system works fine otherwise; it's just a little inconvenient to fiddle with it on a reboot.
I was successful with a workaround for now, too. I ran the video through an old VCR to the TV, and that seems to have stabilized the image and works through full power offs of the IIe.
What I'm curious about is if there's anything that can be tweaked on the IIe itself, or if I just need to get a better display that is more tolerant.
