I'm still a teenager in high school so the $ value of my time is about $15 at most so I decided why not take an hour and build one myself and maybe learn some stuff along the way too.
Sorry, didn't mean to sound flip. Doing something yourself is the best way to learn.
I had a go at building a similar cable myself last year as I had a couple of standard cables lying around. I too followed that tutorial, but there is so much info. it can get a wee bit confusing. Mine did actually work, but I had to destroy the connector to build it and I didn't spend long making it properly, so it was always a bit unreliable.
I might suggest you just start again? Build the most simple (composite) version, prove that works. And then gradually add options, like svid or component and digital audio...?
