Audio/Video connection cable (Composite)

The Super Nintendo comes with a wierd connector for audio and video (A/V) signal. Because I got my old SNES off the garbage without a cable, I needed to hook it up with the TV "in the way of the homeworker". What I created is similar to such a cable:

You can see the pinout of the snes connector in the image below. I needed pin 5, 9, 11 and 12. The (-) "minus" of left- and right audio and video can be connected to Ground (pin 5). Unfortunately I had to crack my box a bit to access the pins - maybe you can build a plug that fits in the SNES connector.

- Pin 5: Ground (-)
- Pin 9: Composite Video (+)
- Pin 11: Left Audio (+)
- Pin 12: Right Audio (+)

This is how the "new" SNES looks like. Good luck with the soldering :).
