14 DATA Data line 1 (Used to change the number of lines)
15 DATA Data line 2 (Used to change from interlaced to progressive)
16 DATA Data line 3 (Used to change from 4:3 to letterbox and 16:9)

The two PWR lines is normally used in scart connectors, to make the TV change channel to AV, and make it go into RGB mode.

If pin 8 and 10 are shorted, the pins 7, 9 and 11 will output Analog Component video (YPbPr) instead of RGB (PAL) or S-Video (NTSC).

The 3 data lines are used on Japanese D-Terminal connectors, and here's how they work:

Data Line 1: 0V = 525 lines (default) ; 2.2V = 750 lines ; 5V = 1125 lines

Data Line 2: 0V = Interlaced ; 5V = Progressive

Data Line 3: 0V = 4:3 ; 2.2V = 4:3 letterbox ; 5V = 16:9.

The data lines do not affect any other regions of the console. The connector does not support any digital video connection, relying exclusively on analog communication.

According to 4 reports in our database (4 positive and 0 negative) this pinout should be correct.
