I had some time this weekend so I worked a little more on the cable. I found that the + being grounded across the connectors was a problem. I cut the ground between each with a hack saw and have made a little progress. The tv now displays incompatible format on the component in. When testing each connector on the composite video I get the following, Y
a few gray fuzzy lines show up moving rapidly and I can read the word pictures from the pm3 sd skin, Pb
half the xbox logo from the boot screen shows up in gre, it is cut off on the right side because it runs off the right side of the screen, Pr
same as Pb except the grey is darker.
From what I know about the component signal, what I get when testing on the composite in was what I expected. The crazy lines and a little bit of the picture due to it only getting an incompatible sync signal and colour, and logo off center and grey due to only getting luminance or chrominance respectively.
If there is anything I'm missing please fill me in. Could the problem be just bad wires? Or is it something more like it's outputing rgb and instead of component?
