I checked my SX64 video cable.


PIN 4   Composite Signal ouput         connected  to SCART PIN 20

PIN 3   Audio out                                     connected to SCART PIN    6  


I guess the ground signal in the scart are connected to PIN 2 of the C64 video


Any advice to make a cable for the Plus4 ?

Should I use PIN 3 (1vpp)  or 5   (0.5vpp) for audio

The DIN on the back. The one on the left side is the RF connector.

is the composite video the plug on the right side 
or the DIN behind ?

I have a cable to connect my SX64 to a TV,   (din to scart)  
is it usable ?

That is nice but does not solve the problem of actually plugging it into the plus/4.

You can use just about any C64/C128 din to RCB cable sold on eBay and then

plug that into what ever device your going to use. <> &_sacat=58058&_sop=10&_odkw=commodore&_osacat=58058&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

You can connect a plus/4 just like a C64(C). I use a cheap USB video grabber bought on ebay, just like this one: .
It produces usable result on my laptop.

I've just received my plus/4
I received the plus/4 + power supply, no other cables ?

what is the best to connect it to a monitor ?
any existing tool to connect to a modern monitor (vga) ?

I think for now I'll have to use the antennae cable ?
another idea is to use an usb tuner connected to my PC ?  any chance ?

thanks  all
