I would like to re-wire my VGA cable to appear as a component cable to the xbox.
MY av system is all setup for routing RGBHV from my source devices to my displays. So far I've been using the Xbox with the VGA adapter and all has been well. But recently I've been using it in 1080i and sending the component signal through my RGBHV cabling.
It works fine, but currently I'm using the component cable, gender changers, a VGA/RGBHV breakout cable just to get it to the right connector to go into my system.
I suspect that the cable tells the xbox what kind it is by grounding a combination of leads. I also kind of suspect that the RGBHV and Component signals run through the same pins. So my hunch is that if I know how to modify my VGA cable to tell the xbox to send component that it might just work with a minimum of re-soldering.
Does anyone know or have pointers to the pinouts for the Xbox360 AV connectors?
Searching around I find tons of guides on how to build a VGA cable from the standard composite cable. But I havent found any pinout info for the component connector.
