The cable needed to connect the Commodore 1084 monitor varies. Is it a Commodore 1084S or a regular 1084? Sorry for the lateness of my post. I haven't checked these forums in quite awhile.

My own 1084S monitor has the following backside pin configuration:

Video Red
Video Yellow
Audio White
Audio Red

The standard video cable that would interface with these four RCA-style inputs would be the 8-pin Commodore Monitor cable (7 pins in a semi-circle, surrounding 1 in the middle). It is a round, circular connection that plugs into the back of any C64/128, Plus/4, C-16 or VIC-20 in the "Video" connection on the back of the computer.

If you need an 80 column plug (for connecting to RGBI in 80-column Commodore 128 mode), then you could possibly use an old-style IBM PC/XT compatible monitor cable (9-pin male plugs, similar to the style presently used in modern day VGA monitors).
