But don't follow those instructions. Removing the pins is doing it
the hard way, and is unneccessary. It's much better to just leave the
original pins intact, and supplement them with new paper clip pins,
since you have much less of a chance of irreperably screwing up your
one and only cable. Wii in composite is better than no Wii at all.
I only had small paper clips. I managed to get the Y/luminance signal
working once I grounded it to the right audio ground, as long as I
jiggle the clip around until it makes contact. I went ahead and
spliced in the other two wires, but there was no way in hell I could
get both to stay in contact side by side.
To acem77: are you saying you didnt ground the component cables at
ALL? I couldn't get Y to work until I grounded it. Now I have a
beautiful component 480i picture...in black and white. I assume they
all need to be grounded to work...I connected all 3 of the "new"
grounds from the component cables to the ground for right audio...is
that overkill? Should I actually bother splicing one new ground into
each of the three pre-existing grounds? I snatched a few paper clips
from work, so I'll at least be able to do it right later tonight.
Also, any idea what the three mystery pins are? I assume one is
chroma for s-video. Does anyone actually have a stock component cable
and can confirm which 2 of the 3 mystery pins are the extra grounds
for the 2 extra component cables? It should be obvious by the process
of elimination...one of the three mystery pins should missing from the
component cable, and thus should be the chroma....
[q]ode Pin 8 & 10 is connect, Wii Output YUV (Pin 7, 9, 11)
Mode Pin 8 & 10 is disconnect, Wii Output RGB (with 220 uf capacitors
) (Pin 7, 9, 11)[/q]
Definitely not - I didnt have 8-10 jumpered, and pin 7 was putting out
