Possible Dual Purpose Y-Splitter Cable
« on: September 02, 2022, 10:16:18 PM »
Hello Everyone,
I've got another Loaded question 4any1 that may have attempted this is the past:
IF I were 2 purchase an ASI-LR-Y-Splitter cable & then found a strange way to "cap/cover" 2 of the 5 pins of 1 Side in order 2make it "look like" an ASI-DB-Y-Splitter Cable - Would the ASI-LR-Y now Function the same as an ASI-DB-Y ?
Would it be possible 2make a Dual Purpose Y-Splitter Cable in this manner?
Thanks,
Sandro

If you cap, cover or remove any of the circuits it would make that circuit inoperable  ...



The above is the same pinout for the AS SIDB Y Cable end - and the AS SILR Y Cable end that connects to the head unit  ...

Thanks the sketch SIr,
I have them too and figureing the cable 2look moreso like "a circuit" than just a cable and No, I wouldnt be so foolish as 2remove pins #1 and #3 - just thinking 2 "block" the LR SI signals. Now I'm No Expert but I will be wondering "why" this wouldnt work.
Thanks, Sandro.

Making the R SI  (pin1) and L SI (pin3) circuits inoperable would allow only the 2d and temp circuits to be operable  ...

Basically turning the AS SILR Y cable into this  ... :



With no R SI circuit (pin1) or L SI circuit (pin3) it would not be comparable to the AS SIDB Y Cable nor the AS SILR Y Cable  ...

Maybe Im still not fully understanding your idea  ...

Is the idea to cap, cover, mask some pins in the AS SILR Y cable and it work as an AS SIDBY Cable  ... ??

Yes Sir,
Cap or Cover or Mask Pin#1 + Pin#3 of one Side of the ASILR 2make it "look" just like an ASIDB... BUT U Know what, it just dawned on me... NO, It Will NOT Work b/c an ASILR is designed 2split the SI signal into 2separate Left/Right Readouts so Even "IF" my crazy idea did somehow work for the DB Side by way of masking Pin#1 and Pin#3 of either the Left or Right Connector End - One Would only achieve a Half Screen of Side Imageing with the other side being "Blank". Well, there goes that idea.
Just so U know, Shipping really sucks up here in The Great White North and many times, the cost of something as simple as an ASIDBY cable is doubled just b/c of Shipping... so when that cost for accessories keeps going up - one must find creative "work-arounds" w/o damaging the actual part itself. Just needed 2think out-loud I guess and was unable 2see the Forrest 4the Trees.
Thanks Again,
Sandro.
