I'm in the process of modding a HD-Pack to give me S-Video and Component. So now I'm in the process of deciding what kind of switch to use.
From the great diagram on the first post of this thread, I see that I need to switch between Advanced & HDTV. Except I only want to install one little switch.
I noticed that Pins 11 & 12 are closed on both modes. so I could permanently short these connections. So now I'm only concerned with pins 9&10 and 13&14, I want to switch from one pair to the other.
Are pins 10, 12 and 14 all ground? If so, I could just get an SPDT, and connect a groung to the center pin.
If not, I suppose I'd need to get a DPDT and wire it up, so only one is closed at one time.
Yes, you can (and in this case should) permanantly connect pins 11 and 12. Pins 10, 12, and 14 are indeed all grounding points. Just use a SPDT switch, hook up one of the 3 grounding pins to the common post on the switch, and pins 9 and 13 to the opposite sides of the switch.
Throw the switch one way, you have Component A/V. Throw the switch the opposite way, you have S-Video A/V.
Good luck with your mod!
so i read this in an earlier post and just wanted to check to see if it does work because i was getting ready to try it. the only reason i didn't want to go ahead with it was because i noticed that the red and green component hookups will be connected to the same pins as the s-video pins. will this be alright?
