My understanding is, it is a semi-unique adaptor because there are more pins on the S-Video plug than the standard.

I believe you at least need to have pins 1, 2, R, G, B.


not sure whether a more "standard" 7-pin S-video connector can fit in or not... some notebook computers use 7-pin S-video connector for S-video plus sound... if it fits, you may be able to modify the other end for connecting to component cables.

Unless you are looking to do two component video feeds to the projector stay away form the S-Video input. The X1 only takes a 480i signal through there. You are better doing a DYI component to 15-pin, easier to get the connectors and you can send the 480p, 720p and the 1080i in to that port.

And the 480i..... Please if I'm wrong about the 480i into the 15-pin someone correct me.

shipping cost:26 usd

it doesn't seem right
The problem is the cable itself is cheap item. A $300 graphics card probably cost the same to ship.
