2010-02-07 10:02:24rev. 2CORRECTPin 17 is ground for pins 19 and 20, composite video or S-video luminance. Pin 18 is ground for pins 8 and 16. Pins 17-17 and 18-18 conections seem obvious choices. Connection 17-18 is true ? Mixing grounds isn't generating problems?APPROVED

2010-02-27 22:20:40rev. 3Virgil PeiulescuPin 17 - ground for composite video or for S-video luminance ; Pin 18 - ground for "slow" (pin 8), and "fast" (pin 16) switching; Question : Pins 17-17 conection and eventualy 18-18 are mandatory, aren't they? Why connect pin 17 to pin 18?
