 Post subject: Looking for RGB cable for the ZX Spectrum Next

I'm wondering if I can order an Nt Mini RGB cable from Retro Access to use with my ZX Spectrum Next. Both systems are FPGA-based and use a DE-15 port to output analog video. The only physical difference is that the Nt Mini outputs audio via 2xRCA, while the Next outputs audio via 3.5mm, but of course I could just use an RCA-to-3.5mm adapter for the Retro Access cable. Here is the pinout info for both systems:


Nt Mini pinout info:
https://support.analogue.co/hc/en-us/ar ... AUCYaGSbrw

Spectrum Next pinout info:
https://wiki.specnext.dev/Circuit_Diagr ... Video_Port

Any knowledgeable person able to take a look at both systems' pinout info and see if the Nt Mini DE-15-to-SCART RGB cable from Retro Access would also work / be safe for the ZX Spectrum Next? Thank you

This + the ZX Speccy Next are for csync on VGA pin 13. No need for sync combiners or anything.

Can also use with anything that outputs csync on pin 13! I forget if this cable has any resistors inside it, though - so you’d wanna double check before using with certain gear (OSSC for example) aside from the ZX Next. Any VGA to SCART cables marketed for Mister or Analogue DAC are wired this same way; csync on VGA pin 13. Don’t be fooled into spending an extra $20+ ;)

Cool, so I can use the cable you linked, but you are also saying the Retro Access Nt Mini cable will work with the Next just fine?

Yeah, it should!
