2012-01-14 00:02:44rev. 6CORRECTThere aren't any errors, pins matched perfectly.APPROVED
2012-07-30 21:33:31rev. 6INCORRECTI'm looking at an NTSC SNES PCB right now and the graphical pinouts for the connectors on this page are backwards. Pins 1 and 2 are on the right; 11 and 12 are on the left (looking at the female on the back of the SNES).APPROVED
2013-04-03 13:24:41rev. 6CORRECTsnes2 can support S-Video and RGB. It has the correct chip inside, Nintendo never connected the chrome, luma, or rgb from the chip to the AV out. Correcting this requires opening up snes2APPROVED
2015-04-09 20:26:51rev. 7ERROR FIXED"at the cable" and "at the console" are reversed.APPROVED
2016-04-15 04:59:48rev. 8CORRECTAPPROVED
2016-04-20 21:35:31rev. 8INCORRECTThis is the 12 pin SNES A/V female proprietary connector is incorrect. Pin 1 goes at the bottom and 2 goes at the top and so all of the pins from right to the left. So pin 1 stars and the right in the bottom. The picture shows the pins backwards and from the left to the right positions. It's totally wrong.APPROVED

2017-08-23 00:11:56rev. 9CORRECTThe pictures for the ports at the console and the cable jack should be swapped.APPROVED
2018-02-19 22:50:26rev. 10CORRECTAPPROVED
2018-12-29 04:56:03rev. 10INCORRECTFor an n64, it's good information, but it really is backwards. Looking at the console female connection, 11 and 12 should be on the left; looking at the male connector with the notch on top (like the female connection), as in the figure (not the picture of the male connection which is upside down), 11 and 12 should be on the right.APPROVED

2020-12-25 18:00:09rev. 10CORRECTNo errors, maybe.. I don`t understand how i do "calculate stereo".APPROVED
2021-01-12 01:10:29rev. 10ERROR FIXEDThe female connector pins are reversed. original pin 1 is where pin 11 is on your picture. Reference: https://gamesx.com/wiki/doku.php?id=av:nintendomultiavAPPROVED
2021-04-13 14:17:15rev. 10ERROR FIXEDleft is the sight of the connector in the console.... wrong pictureAPPROVED
2021-09-15 12:53:46rev. 11CORRECTInformation seems to be correct to my knowledge, but I think it would be very useful to specify that when resistors and capacitors are required in the cable, the resistors need to be before the capacitors (going from console -> TV), otherwise the picture will be toned/tanned and will look off. On this page, there's no mention about order, and some other information online even claims that the order of components doesn't matter.APPROVED
2022-01-22 18:34:38rev. 12CORRECTAPPROVED
2022-09-07 22:33:01rev. 13INCORRECTFemale and male images (real images, not pinout diagrams) are swapped. Otherwise accurate.APPROVED
2023-07-02 15:05:11rev. 13INCORRECTSide is swapped. pin #11 should be number 1 and other way around. Check it here: https://www.consolekabels.be/en_GB/c-3998542/pinout-overview/WAITING FOR APPROVAL
