I wanted to get component for my Gamecube now that I have a TV with component support. But the cable have been discontinued and they are going for over $100 each on eBay
So I thought I'd rip the propriety port out and install plain RCA jacks for regular cable. But a quick look on the internet nixed the idea. Because an idiot thought it was good idea to put the video encoder chip inside the component cable plug, not inside the Gamecube.
Is there a cheaper way to get a component signal out of the Gamecube or am I out $100 either for a cable or for an used Wii with Gamecube support?
PS what idiot puts a chip inside the video plug not inside the console? Makes modding to use regular RCA ports next to impossible.
