I've got a JVC HC-80 (MSX 2), but I lost the monitor cable, which is a DIN-6 connector. I was looking at the MSX Wiki and in the Internet whereabouts, but I didn't found. Does anyone has its pinout?

I double checked on the wiki, it is 5 pin DIN and most likely the same as earlier Japanese Yamaha and Victor machines. A monochrome cable for the Philips machines works on these Yamaha/Victor machines in color.

I do not know the pinout of this connector but if possible it is better to use the RGB21. No NTSC monitor needed and the picture will be better.

RGB will give you better image, spec for the DIN connector can be found here, look for MSX standard AV DIN-5 connector (MSX-Datapack).
