As you said, the sound signal is very weak. Well, practically, the audio output buffer in the Plus/4 rarely (if ever) breaks. Not impossible to see it, but it's very unlikely. From the other hand, as you said, you had to make a new cable to be able to see something on the display (at all). From that, I get, your cable is new and has not been proven to work correctly (yet). The sound signal should be taken from pin 3 of the DIN plug. You can actually experience a weak audio signal if you accidentally take the signal from pin 5. This is the EXT AUDIO input (...although an input, a small proportion of the internal sound signal can usually be found here). > Btw: I've not been able to find a 8 Pins din connector suitable with the > plus 4 > I used a 5 pins one from lextronic. That's perfect as long as you're using composite video. You'd only need a 8-pin one once you start experimenting with separate luma/chroma a.k.a s-video connection. Joe/STA used to have a page about these things, let me look it up... http://sta.c64.org/cbmmonc.html He lists the preferred 8-pin DIN as DIN41524 (262-degree). According to him, the other, not suitable one is DIN45326 (270-degree). http://sta.c64.org/legend.html Conrad usually keeps the 262-degree plug on stock. (...Not an optimal one, IMHO, they're a bit expensive, and I also don't know whether they're around in France, so if you can find a different source, you should probably go for that one).
