Playstation A/V

The PSX has everything you'll ever need for connecting it to the machine of your choice, sans RF output. As usual, the RGB caveats apply, and you will need to use an LM1881 or similar circuit to strip the sync from the video line.For reference, here's the pinout I use to connect all my systems to my monitors. I single common pinout means I don't need a seperate monitor cable for each system.

NEW! [Jan 12/99]: You must add a 220uf capacitor in each of the RGB lines to get an acceptable picture. If you don't, the picture will be too dark and you won't like it!!
