CORRECTI found pins 1 and 3 swapped, but maybe I am reading the image backwards. If its meant to be the pics on the connecting plug - correct. If its meant to be the socket pinout - incorrect, mirrored.APPROVED
CORRECTThe same pinout of:
Ive tested the comp. video, audio mono and ground (to make my own AV cable to TV) and it worked. I could not test other pins.
CORRECTIn reference to the U-shaped DIN plug pictured in upper-left corner: the standard for this plug is DIN 41524 (the normal round one is DIN 45326, in case someone were to try to find these online)APPROVED
CORRECTSure seems to be correct, I installed an RCA output to my Genesis/MegaDrive using this information. Dont know about the others, but ground and comp. video are correct. And the connector on the machine is upside down, compared to that picture.APPROVED
2009-07-20 00:41:31rev. 2CORRECTAs has been stated, 1 and 3 seem swapped, which probably means this is the male pinout. Still, good enough to make an A/V cable by splicing a MIDI DIN-5 with a stereo patch cable.APPROVED
2012-02-09 07:29:07rev. 4ERROR FIXEDThe connector on the Genesis I have apart is significantly different than the one pictured.APPROVED
