Any composite 3.5mm to triple RCA plug A/V cable for an Ipod, or MS Zune should work.nilsk123 wrote:alright, so could anyone point me to a cable that should definitely work?
if you have a "random cable" it might be a "camcorder cable" and it would be worth trying if swapping the yellow and red RCA plugs works.
If you order this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-FT-3-5mm-Male ... 540b2b9112
cable its a compatible "camcorder" cable that according to the description can also be used as an Ipod cable, if you swap the yellow and red RCA plugs, like I explained earlier.
as you can see, the price is right too $1,00
Unfortunately buying these kind of cables with any confidence they will work, on eBay, can be exceedingly difficult, as they never ever publish any sufficient technical details.
I expect that very soon they will start advertising the correct ones as "compatible with the raspberry PI A+ an B+", and hopefully you will then receive one that not only can work, but will also be fully compatible, without the need to swap RCA connectors (other than perhaps the white and red audio ones)
