These pictures should give you an overall idea on how the cable looks like and how it should be properly assembled. However, when building a cable yourself, you should not rely on the pictures only; see the construction guide instead.


Connect the S-Video plug into the S-Video port on your device. Connect the red and black RCA plugs of your Commodore monitor cable into the ports of the corresponding color on the converter; if your monitor cable has three RCA plugs but none of them is black then use the yellow RCA plug instead.

Important! Do not plug or unplug cables while your equipment is switched on. Make sure that all components of your equipment are connected to the same, properly grounded power outlet.
