 Post subject: Nintendo AV multi-out connector availability

Greetings,

I want to make my own set of cables for the SNES but struggling to find some high quality connectors which plug into the SNES (same connector for NES, N64, GC). Does anyone know of a reputable supplier for such things? Ideally I'd find some with gold plated contacts.
I found this post on here but I can't PM the person directly, possibly because my account is new.

Buy some official N64 RF modules, rob the gold plated pins from them to insert in generic Chinese SNES/N65/Gamecube cable ends. Some modification will be necessary, memory is hazy, and you'll need multiple RF modules (I think two?) just to do one proper RGB cable.

You could just build the cable into the RF module housing, but they won't normally fit the Super Famicom, or an AV Famicom, etc because of clearance issues.

Do you know if these are any different to what appears to be the source for most sellers?

Even in the product photo they look pretty low quality.

I've since found this project viewtopic.php?f=6&t=63337 where the connector looks great and the electronics are sure to be neat but I'm waiting on availability in this form.

Interesting, if it fits a PAL/European SNES that'd be enough for me and the housing is a bonus. If nothing of quality is available directly, this is very helpful if it fits.

Yeah I know they aren't the peak specimens you were hoping for, but basically everything on the market is that exact same part.

Probably all made in the same Chinese factory too :roll:

The ones from Helder are different to the ones on an ebay scart cable.
I've used a few in my own setup and they are brilliant.
