Making my own Genesis Component Cable – Awaiting prototype

Sourced a place to get the 8 pin din plugs that genesis and such use for a/v out…so i can wire direct to the necessary pins that output the red green and blue signal.

Hardest part is gonna be making the cables look nice nice. needing some type of shrink wrap or a “box” or clip to house the “wiring connections”

    Sadly the place I thought was selling AV barrel plugs 8 pins, bought a couple, doesnt fit the genesis model 1.

    Going to have to cannibalize a AV cable for the plug I guess

    im going to install 6 rca jacks in the back of my model 1. Red, Green, Blue, Sync, Audio-L, Audio-R. I’m using a Sony PVM rgb tube monitor, it has bnc inputs but i have little rca to bnc nubs on them. I dont like the genesis scart cable because since i dont just have a scart input on the monitor you have to plug that into a female scart to bnc and the two scarts together form this horrid s lump that makes the cables look a bit silly and not very streamlined. I also feel like the signal would be cleaner if it were 1 cable. with the typical setup people do I think it’s frustrating that you have to first get a decent genesis scart cable for 30-40 (so many complaints of cheaper cables being bad) then you have to spend another 30-40 on the 2nd scart to bnc cable, and if the signal does not look good your left wondering which cable is the problem.

    Did anything come of this? Component would be more convenient than using Scart and converting it, which is what I personally plan to do. I got a scart cable im waiting on for a model 1 Genny. it’s gotta ship from mainland China though so it’ll probably be 2 weeks or so before I get it. Then I will use a scart to hdmi conversion box so i can upscale to 720p or 1080p. I hope everything works out.
