Japanese 21-pin RGB Connector

This page is no longer updated!! Please use this wiki page instead!

Well we've just about got it solved. While traipsing about in Japan, we picked up RGB cables for use on our monitors back home. The problem was these cables used an entirely non-standard plug, which had 21 pins on it. There's a European connector, called a SCART or Euro connector which is identical in appearance, but the pinout from the Japanese version is completely different!

Female SCART connector

We searched everywhere for that, and when we finally did find it, it was WRONG! We've corrected the errors, and to the best of our knowledge, this is the absolutely correct version of the Japanese 21-pin SCART-style connector!
