Picture?
There are wavetable headers on ASUS media bus cards, but they are more like video-audio hybrids.

Example? Just because it has pins instead of being an edge connector doesn't mean it's not a feature connector.

I know, I have a trust cybergun add-on which needs to be installed on the FEATURE CONNECTOR of your graphics card but looking for WAVETABLE CONNECTOR CGA PINOUT got me nowhere

Because there's no wavetable connector on VGA cards.

What is the VGA card you are talking about?

RAM upgrades sometimes looked like wavetable daughter cards.

Just looked at it and the manual says NOT TO CONFUSE the VGA connector with the WAVETABLE connector.
ASUS P2B with P3 1100 for sale.

Lots of other stuff too. PM me for more details.

I think there is a language barrier here?

If there is a pin header on your video card, it's 99% certain it's a feature connector, unless it's something odd like an early 3d accelerator card maybe.

well, I do remember that there used to exist some VGA/Sound combo boards. Maybe it is a reference to those?

Possibly. Something like the Diamond EDGE 3D? Although that was a 3D card and I'm not sure it had a wavetable connector, I know it had sound and video on the same card.

I couldn't find either CGA or PINOUT in the manual.
The manual does say not to confuse feature connector with wavetable connector.

And the manual's point was basically to say "not this one!" if you went hunting for a place to plug it in inside your computer.

People that bought this product would have to open up the computer to plug it in. If they simply went hunting for a matching connector, that might mistakenly plug it into the wavetable header because the pins seem to work with the cable of the product.

The manual is just telling you not to plug it into that spot on accident.
