    Just looking for a bit of help here as I’d rather not have to go through another return if it’s something I can fix myself.

    I recently bought a saturn c-sync cable from the above link for my JP white saturn. Reason being that I need strong sync for my RGB modded JVC H1950CG. I could have modified a cheaper cable to pull sync from pin 1 – but I failed on two attempts to open up the din connector without destroying it (glued to hell and back) and the 10 pin din connectors are impossible to find as parts.

    So I bought this – it has a sync stripper built into the middle. But it doesn’t work. I’ve hooked it up to my JP saturn and the sync is non-existent. On my CRT its a completely unstable image and the OSSC detects zero sync. So it’s obviously not working. What’s leading me to assume it’s actually the cable/stripper build thats the issue is that I previously bought a Gamecube c-sync cable with a built in stripper from the same seller – and that didn’t work either! Exactly same problem, and zero detected sync on the OSSC. It was a pain to get a return and refund of, so I’d rather not go through that again.

    Any ideas?

    Normally his cables are good quality too, I noticed he’d started putting sync cleaners into the cables, I’d rather he just pulled and properly cleaned the sync from pin 1 personally, but I suppose then it’s only a matter of time before someone used that same cable on a PAL machine.

    No I don’t think you have any choice but to return it, sorry.

    I guess I could open it up, bypass the cleaner and hook up pin 1…I guess that’d work?

    I just don’t get it. Surely he tests these cables before sending them out? It quite clearly doesn’t work!

    The other option…mount a DB9 socket into the expansion bay (I have a spare panel), hook it up to the multi out pins and retrofit the cable with a DB9 plug. May just do that

    Goddamnit Sega, why use such an obscure connector?

    I’m not sure if clean sync output from the saturn is 75ohm or TTL, if it’s the latter it should be adjusted first.
