Converting XBOX coaxial plug to Gamestop Component

Postby RELENTLESS » Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:35 pm

i have a Gamestop universal video adapter
im sure most of you have seen one
they have nintendo, playstation, and xbox 360 plugs, a conversion box, and the component cables
all one unit

i have an old coaxial Xbox plug , i cut the coaxial cable off

i cut the 360 plug off the gamestop adapter

i followed a video tutorial to convert Xbox 360 component to Xbox component
but when he says "connect the grounds for each one", i dont have those wires inside

hes referring to the microsoft cable wires
i obviously have the gamestop cable.
i contacted the youtuber and he suggested the wiring should be done the same

only, after successfully connecting the audio and getting the audio to work when i start the xbox, the video is still not working

i have 3 wires connected to the pins for the component video but i dont have the grounds

i can elaborate, take pictures, pm links
if you have knowledge of this type of stuff and can help me please help me

this should be easy solve. my ideal responses are something like "no you cant do that with that cable" or "it should be like this ____"

i cant post links cause im new so i hope this works for you
youtube. com/watch?v=S8jFJjoIO8s

i tried a bunch of conbinations
as well as i have the jumpers between 6/18 and 7/19
i have no ground yet

do i need a ground? im not super good with electronics

ANYONE WHO HAS ANY KNOWLEDGE TO SHARE ON THIS
I THANK YOU NOT FOR YOUR GREAT WORK THAT YOU DID TO LEARN SUCH COMPLEX THINGS
BUT INSTEAD I THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORT IN SHARING IT WITH ME AND THE OTHERS :)
BECAUSE I KNOW THAT YOU ARE DOING THAT SELFLESSLY

I've done this mod(used same video) using the original xbox 360 cables and it's working without problem.

Yes. you need the grounds. Mandatory. Even the original xbox cables have this.

I strongly recommend to use the cables from the tutorial. Original xbox 360 cables are high quality. No interference or issues.

When you can post some pictures of the cable you are trying to use. Might help.

thank you for your generous response

I will post pictures immediately!

i assumed you need the grounds. the gamestop cable doesnt have the same number of wires
so its like it doesnt have grounds

but if it has to have a ground, then im assuming it has something to do with the naked copper wire.... ill just post pics. gimmie 10 minutes

Truth be told...i dont know what i'm looking here. It's not clear which wire is the ground and the cables do not go in pairs. :(

Might i sugest looking for example at the blue plug and try to see what wires run throught there.
What i mean remove a little plastic from one of the cable plug and see what pairs are running under each wire plug. Might give you an idea which pairs you need to solder. if any.
If indeed you find 2 pairs of wire that go the plug then you need to determine the ground.

Other then that i cant help you.

If you have multi-meter you can check which wires are ground for each plug.
If you don't have one only 100% method is watch danielU suggested.

For my Xbox I used original Microsoft cable from X360.

it seems everyone uses that one
but i dont have that
and i dont want to pay for it when we know its just a couple of wires to solder correctly
Thank you immensely for your support

i do have a multimeter
i dont know how to use it but i can look up the directions
see my problem seems to be that i dont understand where the grounds are...
the nude copper wire has tio be the ground, and it runs back trough the lower end of the cable (part going to xbox) the ground runs through and hits the plug but how does it hit every other pin than the one i solder it to? do i need jumpers from the ground to each videos ground?
or can i not use the same ground for each one??

i thought that the ground was 1 singular thing so that i could jump the ground pins all together
and that it would work

but do they all have to be soldered in to wokrk? can i get video from just the green for instance to test it? or will the video not show unless all plugs are working simultaneously?

I look at your pictures and it should work. Is the switch on the cable in correct position (component)? You can link all grounds together to tray if it works.

Shoot me a PM with an address and I'll send you a 360 cable and an official Xbox composite connector. $5 should cover postage

The switch is in the correct position, it is in the Y Pb Pr mode
As well as i have tested both positions

I will solder jumpers from each ground and see if the whole thing works.
