Genesis YPbPr Component Cable
Our 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. 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.
