Making your own Analog cables for DAC

If you would like to build your own custom video cables, the analog video pin out of the Nt mini is:

1 - red (also composite video, and component R-Y)
2 - green (also s-video chroma, and component luma )
3 - blue (also s-video luma and component B-Y)
4 - ground
5 - detection
6 - ground for pin 1
7 - ground for pin 2
8 - ground for pin 3
9 - +5v
10 - detection
11 - ground
12 - nc
13 - H synch (also composite synch)
14 - V synch (also composite synch)
15 - detection

To make an s-video/composite cable:

1 - composite signal
6 - composite ground
2 - s-video chroma signal
7 - s-video chroma ground
3 - s-video luma signal
8 - s-video luma ground
4 - connect to 5

Use a separate ground for each signal will simplify wiring. Connecting pins 4 and 5 together will put the system into composite/s-video mode.

To make a component cable:

1 - R-Y signal
6 - R-Y ground
2 - luma signal
7 - luma ground
3 - B-Y signal
8 - B-Y ground

To make an RGB cable:

1 - Red
6 - Red ground
2 - Green
7 - Green ground
3 - Blue
8 - Blue ground
4 - connect to 10
13 - Hsynch
14 - Vsynch
11 - ground for Hsynch and Vsynch
