Selecting the GT64 monitor makes the background green instead of the foreground. Changing it back to CTM640 makes the background grey.

|the plus machines have their own dynamic palette, so it's easy to see why this happens.|

|I wonder what a CPC Plus would actually display on a GT64, the Plus range had their own monochrome and colour monitor. While you could connect a GT64 or CTM640 to a Plus, you'd also get no sound, as the speaker was moved from the base unit, to the monitor. The Pluses should really have their own, separate monitor options.|

You can still connect some amplifiers to the Plus' headphone jack, same as you can do when connecting other systems like the Spectrum +2A and a +3 (which, by the way, look amazing on a CTM644).
I guess that the ideal scenario would be to give all systems access to any device with compatible connectors (Vas is doing a great job with the controllers in this regard), and assign to each monitor device their respective features, such as the green/amber tint, adjustment knobs, additional displays, etc, instead of having them depend on the system's driver.
