Hello,


Could someone who owns the "Built by ATI" Radeon 7500

tell me what pins on the s-video output of the video

card are used for the "S-Video to Composite" cable that

is included with the card?


Regular S-Video connectors usually only have 4 pins.

However, the 7500 video card has 7 holes on its s-video

output. So, I am hoping that one of the 3 extra pins

carries the composite signal.


Someone who has the "svideo to composite" converter cable

that came with the card, could just do a quick continuity

test from both contacts on the composite end of the plug

(inner and outer contact) against the 7 pins and the outer

contact on the svideo plug at the other end of the cable.

Then, if you provided me with the results of the tests, I

could build my own converter cable.


I have a non ati built card which did not come with the

adapter. So I am trying to build my own adapter.


Thanks!

Hobbieman.

Well, I figured it out. The pinout is as follows:


\\/

7 6 5


4 3 2 1


/\\ 00 /\\



1: GND

2: GND

3 : +12V

4: GND

5: Luma *

6: Composite

7: Chroma *


* These two might be backwards...


I built the converter cable and it works fine.
