HD Retrovision Sony Playstation 1 Adapter - Use with Genesis 2 Cable

Finally, after an epic journey, HD Retrovision was able to support the original PlayStation! This adapter converts the male 9-pin mini-DIN connector on the Genesis YPbPr cable to a male PlayStation 12-pin connector.

The specific list of known supported consoles can be found here. Though it may work with others that haven't been tested, it cannot be guaranteed.

Although the PlayStation adapter will work with PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 consoles, RGB/SCART output needs to be enabled in the system menu and even then it can only operate properly in the standard definition video modes (240p/288p/480i/576i). Additionally, the built-in DVD/Blu-ray Player application in these consoles is restricted from using RGB/SCART mode, so DVD/Blu-ray playback won't display properly when set to this mode. If this missing functionality is important to you, we recommend waiting for the HD Retrovision PS2/PS3 YPbPr cable which we hope to offer soon.

NOTE: This product requires an HD Retrovision Genesis YPbPr Cable. It will not work with a SNES YPbPr cable or any other cable.

Your television or display must be able to support "240p" video over YPbPr to use this product. Please test your specific equipment using this simple test procedure. This test should be run for each console with which you wish to use with our cables.

    Snug Fit

    So I got one of these around 2 years ago (from somwhere else), and the female Genesis 2 end was seriously loose. If you touched the system, you would lose video. I emailed SAG and they assued me that problem has been rectified, and I am happy to say it indeed has been fixed. Never been so excited over an adapter after spending the last 2 years messing with a loose adapter. HD Retrovision cables are top notch.
