Make Your Own Cable

If you’d like, you can try to make your own RGB cable.  First, get a 24-pin dual-edge connector, (.100 DIP).  Digikey has them here.  Then wire RGB to pins 4B, 7A, 5A (respectively), wire RGB ground to pin 10B and csync to pin 5B.  There doesn’t seem to be any components necessary on the RGB lines (I think!), but a 680 ohm, 1/4 watt resistor and a 220uF/16v capacitor are required on the csync output.  Also, don’t share video ground with audio: Make sure to wire audio ground to pin 2A.  Here’s a diagram from
