    Hi all, I want to make a component to VGA cable for my Sanyo Z2 so I only need the one cable going to the PJ. Does anyone know the pin diagram I would need to do this? I successfully made an RGB to VGA cable for it using the pin connections on the Keene site, but cant find the info for a component one.

    Thanks

    hello mate, the Z2 does support DVI, VGA, RGB and component through the DVI socket (as well as seperate component inputs). It's definately there in the menus and says on the back of the PJ. I just need the pin outs to solder up a cable so I can just have the VGA cable to the projector (using a DVI-VGA adapter) and the other cables connecting to that through a switch box.

    Thanks for the reply though :)

    Yup - page 34 of the service manual suggest it does indeed support component via DVI...

    Looking at the circult diagram, it is most likley pins 25,26 and 27 as they are presented to the AN5870 chip.

    No other info is in the service manual... might be worth a call to Sanyo themselves...

    Cheddies, Component is very similar to VGA. You could call it VGA Sync on Green

    Nah, VGA is RGB, Component is luminesence, and a pair of colour difference signals. You'd have to convert RGB to YUV. In the case of the Z2, however, you'd run the RGB into the DVI input, as others have said.

    thanks for all the info guys, I actually forgot about this thread and used trial and error on the connectors to create my own cable, it used the same pins as the RGB connectors so I just had to find out which YUV signal mapped to which RGB signal on the connector. :)
