    Quick update, just as easy to perform the same technique to extract RGB from the expansion port of the PC Engine console. Most people do this in conjunction with a simple external amp, to boost the RGB signal, but with my TV it doesn't appear totally necessary.



    ^ My camera is making it look darker than what it is to the naked eye.

    To assemble the RGB cable, pretty much follow the same procedure as above and attach some header pins to a SCART cable as follows:





    PCE Expansion Bus SCART plug
    C23 - BLUE Pin 7
    B23 - GREEN Pin 11
    A23 - RED Pin 15
    C22 - SYNC Pin 20
    C21 - Vout (+5 Volts) Pin 16
    C20 - GND Pin 4
    C1 - SNDR (Right Audio) Pin 2
    A1 - SNDL (Left Audio) Pin 6
    C2 - GND Pin 4

    That's just what worked for me, if I connected it any other way it wouldn't work. Some sites suggest pin 8 of the SCART plug for the 5V line but that didn't work for me, nor did using pin 18 for its ground. Using pin 16 my TV auto switched to AV and a 4:3 aspect ratio.
