YPbPr Component Cable for Sega Genesis - HD Retrovision

HD Retrovision Sega Genesis YPbPr Component Cable

PLEASE NOTE: Adapters are needed if using this with a Model 1 Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, or Sony Playstation 1.  Please use those links if needing more than 1 adapter.  

The Genesis YPbPr Component Cable will make every game from Altered Beast to Zero Wing look like you've never seen it before. A standard composite Sega Genesis cable results in blurry text, color smearing, and the loss of some of the original detail. But HD Retrovision YPbPr cables provide a clean, white balanced image that is crisp and clear. Use them on an HDTV that supports 240p, or on a standard-definition CRT for that classic look.!

The Genesis YPbPr cable has a Model 2 style plug, compatible with later editions of the Genesis. We also offer an adapter that converts this plug to work on the Model 1 Genesis and Master System, as well as adapters for several other consoles. The Genesis cable also includes a stereo upgrade jack to simplify audio connectivity. Using a male-to-male 3.5mm audio cable, it is simple to upgrade your standalone Model 1 Genesis or combination 32X/Sega CD unit to stereo audio.

The following charts contain a list of tested and confirmed console models which have been verified to work with the Genesis YPbPr Cable and Model 1 adapter. The intent of these lists is to give a general idea of what types of consoles can work with the cable and adapter, and are not exhaustive. Therefore, we expect the cable to work with even more models and console types than what is listed, but we are unable to explicitly put them in the list unless functionality is directly confirmed by us.

    HD Retrovision YPbPr Component Cable for Sega Genesis

    Posted by Great quality on May 23rd 2024

    I am quite impressed with this cable. I have an older Samsung Syncmaster LCD monitor/TV that can accept 240p signals, and this cable gives a very nice, clear picture. With the cable`s switch set to ``bright``, the colors look very close to what I get with my Sony 27`` CRT. After using this cable, I`m thinking about getting one for my N64, too. All in all it`s a great product.

    I use hdretrovision cables to connect to my PVM. Video and sound quality are impressive.

    I have been looking into improving my setup, and I always knew I wanted component. This was always being hyped and I wanted to see for myself. From 32x, Genesis, and even my PS1 (via adapted sold separately) I can safely say this BLEW my expectations away. I used it on both my CRT and Retrotink 5x and I definitely plan to buy more for the rest of my consoles that support RGB. 1000000% recommend!

    My Genesis has never looked better

    Posted by Matthew Ponzi on Apr 14th 2024

    I`m a big fan of these cables. They look amazing through a PVM with the Genesis. Sharp picture, amazing colors. The only thing that would have made them better is if they came with the auxiliary cable for the model 1 Genesis, even if it was packaged with the adapter. Great buy!

    Genesis Component Cables

    Posted by Aaron Snead on Mar 29th 2024

    Beautiful 240P image with a model 2 Genesis. Test to make sure your TV will accept 240P or you’ll need a scaler/ line doubler. Had an issue with my Saturn not working with the adapter for this though. US console. Worked fine with a scart cable so I’m not sure what the issue is. Highly recommend for Genesis users.

    Worth every cent!

    Posted by Justin Yates on Mar 9th 2024

    This cord is a total game changer. I had a close friend who told me to look into this cord when I told him I purchased a Genesis Model 2 second hand and my new CRT had component inputs. As a gamer on a budget I can’t justify going the HDMI route with the retro counsels I have. So the $40 CRT Facebook marketplace find has been my go to monitor. When I purchased this cord it completely brought a whole new life to my Genesis. To my understanding, the output on the Genesis 2 is complete garbage. Using this cord brought out colors I never saw before. The purples specifically. Worth every penny!
